I was really really hesitant about trying this recipe based on some of the reviews, but decided to give it a chance, and decide for myself. I honestly don't know what all the bad reviews were about. If you enjoy key limes, you will find this cake delicious. I did not use the glaze. I also chose to bake it in the stainless steel bowl that comes with the kitchenaid mixer, and increased the bake time by about a half an hour or so. The cake was very moist since it was baked in a deep bowl, and I just cut a slight bit off the top layer because it was a bit too brown for my taste. I then and inverted the cake onto a plate, frosted it, and decorated it. I ended up with a very cool ball shaped cake. It was delicious. Again, I did not use the glaze, so maybe with the glaze it would be too strong of a taste. but for me it's a keeper. Thanks for sharing. I encourage others to take the recipe, experiment with it, and with a few minor adjustments, you can really be creative with it. For someone with no cooking experience, you may not have the ability to modify the instructions to make it work PERFECTLY, so for that reason I rated it a four. For taste however, I give it a five.
