TCS ~ July 2015 ~ Key Lime Icebox Cake!

I wonder if the TCS members managed to cover all the four choices for July!?

1. Lane Cake - A sticky rum & raisin filling oozes out and covers a golden layer cake. P76

2. Key Lime Icebox Cake - This refreshing summertime cake is really a super sneaky shortcut in cake baking - there's no cake to bake. Instead graham crackers sandwich a tart custard. P108

3. Tiramisu Layer Cake - This cake combines the flavour of traditional tiramisu with a 
layer cake you can decorate. P115

4. Mexican Chocolate Pound Cake - We replicated the flavour profile of Mexican chocolate
using semisweet chocolate and cinnamon. P185
***
without hesitation, I choose Key Lime Icebox Cake - page 108
using both Limau Nipis and Limau Kasturi
 at half the recipe
no graham crackers from the USofA to be found
only one brand available from.... 
the Philippines!
 I opted to top the slice with tropical fruits instead of whipped cream
a nice dessert!
also good on its own, without any additional touches!

  5. Beautiful looking layers Emily and lots of yummy custard. Those limes look wonderful...are the two kinds the reason for different sizes?
