Look Familiar?

Yes, you finally get a description of the cake used in my header.  I made it for my aunt's birthday earlier this year.  Here's another view...

 Coconut, Lime & Passion Fruit Cake [02.14.2010]

I really love tropical and fresh flavors.  This cake is a coconut flavored sponge brushed with a lime syrup then layered with a passion fruit curd.  To mellow out some of the tart flavors in the cake, I "frosted" it with a fluffy meringue. It's then finished with lime zest, candied lime, candied coconut and toasted coconut.  

I absolutely love the visual appeal of this cake.  I hardly ever make cakes because it's really a project.  However, it's very rewarding when your hard work pays off.
