Key Lime Cheesecake in Layer Cake Form

DClope | Apr 25, 2007 02:21 PM

A friend's birthday potluck picnic is coming up on Sunday. I got tapped to make his birthday cake... and he requested key lime pie. ...There might be dozens at the party, however, and it's really a shame to make a birthday dessert that's too small to go around. I'd also rather make one large dessert, a showpiece to put candles on, than make several smaller ones (ruling out making a couple key lime pies).

So I'm thinking of doing some sort of key lime cake. I really like the look and flavor combos of Gourmet's Key Lime Cheesecake with Mango Ribbons (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/rec...), but a cheesecake might also be too small. I need height here.

Any thoughts on converting key lime cheesecake to a multi-layered birthday cake? I thought maybe a key lime cake with cream cheese frosting and mango ribbons on top... or maybe a vanilla cake with key lime curd and mango between the layers?
