Daiquiri Cake

h2Chef’s Notes/h2
pLimes are somehow better and juicer in the fall and winter. Take advantage by cooking and baking with them! By simply changing out one ingredient, I get to create a totally different flavor. For example: change the rum for tequila and you have a Margarita cake. Unlike MANY of my other cake recipes, this one benefits from a long (4 minute) beating time./p

h2Chef’s Notes/h2
pMy most used frosting is this cream cheese recipe below. It is too easy to make. Like the cake above, it takes just a little change to create a whole new flavor. With butter cream I can usually “feel” the sweetener. The only downside is that the cake needs to be refrigerated. I usually take it out of the refrigerator an hour or so before serving./p
