When cool, icing with a simple lime/lemon icing.

Make up mixing 2 cups of icing sugar with 1 tbsp milk and lemon/lime juice until it resembles a smooth paste.

Mix until smooth and pour on cake:)

You can add in toasted coconut on the top of the icing but with my greedyboys, no-show!!


Well, they like it fresh and in baking but not on top of things or where they can see it…go figure!!

lovely and moist....
