On Monday, instead of doing the St. Patrick’s meal thing, I forgot completely about it and went to the beach only to come home and realize I had totally missed it. Sooo, we did it on Tuesday. Ha ha. We’ve learned in our family that we have to work with our schedule and celebrate holidays whenever we have the chance. When my husband was in the Army he missed many a holiday and with his current job it will be much of the same. We’ve determined the actual day doesn’t matter, it’s the opportunity to be together and celebrate that is most important.
As part of our Belated St Patrick’s Day celebration I wanted a fun dessert. I went through some of my boards on Pinterest, threw out a couple options to my hubby, and he decided on this Key Lime Bundt Cake by The 36th Avenue. It was amazing! It’s a denser cake with a chewy outside almost like a crust. The lime cream cheese frosting was just the ultimate kicker. I couldn’t find Key Lime frosting at my local supermarket (on a side note my local store has the saddest baking section, it is so frustrating to go looking for something specific) so I used regular cream cheese frosting and the juice of 1 1/2 limes and my leftover lime zest. It worked out perfectly.
