  • - Hey everyone, it's Natasha of natashaskitchen.com

  • and today I'm gonna share with you

  • the ultimate summer party cake.

  • It's a key lime coconut cake.

  • And this recipe was shared with me

  • by one of my readers, Lena.

  • I tried it, and fell in love and I know

  • you guys will, too.

  • We start by slicing our four ingredient sponge cake.

  • Now I have a video tutorial for this that I'll link below.

  • It's so easy and one of my very favorite cake bases.

  • Spread coconut flakes into a 9 by 13 pan,

  • and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for seven to ten minutes.

  • Stirring a few times, especially towards the end.

  • On to the lime syrup and cream.

  • Start by grating a couple of lines.

  • You'll need one tablespoon of zest.

  • Then squeeze the juice from the rest of your limes.

  • (lively music)

  • Measure out 3 tablespoons of lime juice and

  • set that aside for the cream.

  • You'll have a quarter cup of lime juice left for the syrup.

  • Add three fourths cup of warm water and three

  • tablespoons of sugar, stir it together and set if aside.

  • The frosting is easy-peasy.

  • Beat together one package of softened cream cheese with

  • one cup of sugar on high speed

  • for three minutes or until it is whipped.

  • Scrape it down once or twice, as needed,

  • then add 16 ounces of cold sour cream.

  • (lively music)

  • Continue mixing that on high speed for about a minute,

  • or until it is smooth.

  • Then add 1 tablespoon of lime zest,

  • and 3 tablespoons of lime juice.

  • Beat that another minute until combined and its done.

  • Now, taste and smell this frosting,

  • and you'll know this cake is gonna be amazing.

  • We're ready to assemble.

  • Place the first sliced cake layer on a serving platter

  • and brush the top with one fourth of your syrup.

  • Spread with a generous amount of cream.

  • You'll notice this frosting is not very thick,

  • but that's exactly what we want.

  • Remember, this cake is a sponge cake,

  • so it absorbs some of that cream and this cake

  • turns out so moist.

  • Repeat this process with the remaining layers

  • and then cover the top and sides with the rest of the cream.

  • (lively music)

  • Wipe away any extra cream from the cake platter.

  • There's no need for perfection because the coconut

  • flakes cover everything.

  • (lively music)

  • The easiest way to put the coconut flakes on the

  • sides of the cake is just to scoop it on with your hands.

  • And be generous, you have plenty of coconut to work with.

  • (lively music)

  • The cake is ready to be devoured, lucky me.

  • So we're going to do a taste test.

  • Also, if you let it sit in the fridge for a

  • couple of hours, it's much easier to slice.

  • (lively music)

  • Wow, that lime juice is so fresh and exciting,

  • it kind of wakes you up.

  • And the combination of lime and coconut and that

  • super moist cake, this cake is phenomenal.

  • Take it to your next party and you will get compliments.

  • I hope you guys enjoyed this recipe.
