Took me 3 attempts to get this right 🥴 The first time round the cake was waay too dense and stodgy inside (pictures 8 and 9). If you put a slice in the microwave for 20 seconds, lowkey it actually tastes great and the stodgyness works 👀

Second time round the cakes got burnt – feel like our oven has a mind of its own at times because half the time the cakes burn (I’m sure I checked the temperature like 5 times before I left it to bake) 💀

I ended up making another batch and finally it turned out okay so I got to ice it. I also cut the top off the burnt cakes, I thought it would make icing the cake problematic but they ended up looking so nice in the end 🥺

For the coconut flavour I used coconut oil in all 3 of the cakes, but the flavour wasnt strong at all so I may have to try another idea next time 🥥 You could definitely taste the lime though – adding both the juice and zest brought loads of flavour! 🍰
