I love the looks of this cake, I love the taste of the batter, and love the taste of the glaze. I posted two pictures. One of the cake with the glaze, prepared and baked exactly as instructed. The only thing I changed was to use regular limes instead of key limes. The second picture is after I added my own frosting because I decided it looked to bland and may have tasted too dry without some sort of frosting. I used 2 Tablespoons of softened butter creamed into 1 cup of confectioners sugar and then added the zest of one small regular lime along with 1 Tablespoon of rum and the juice of that same lime. I added 1 tsp of vanilla also. I then drizzled it over the cake. It looks prettier and should add to the moisture. We ate it, it was delicate, and delicious. Not dry at all. Everyone else loved it, I liked it but would have liked a little more lime flavor. Next time I will try adding a teaspoon of lemon extract, to give more flavor. It is a good recipe though, and would be great if leftovers are cubed and layered with lemon curd or pudding in a trifle. I will certainly make this again. If you like poundcake, this is a good one.
