Fabulous Key Lime Bundt Cake

Key Lime Bundt Cake from We Take the Cake

The following review was originally written for Worldwide Delicacies.com

Oprah Winfrey’s opinion carries a lot of clout and when she picks something as one of her “favorite things,” it usually stands up to any test.  Such is the case with the Key Lime Bundt Cake sent to me from We Take the Cake. 

My cake arrived in their signature decorative pink, green and black cake box carefully cushioned in packing materials. The bundt had a round container of glaze in the center hole- which actually helps prevent shipping problems. I then stirred the container of glaze and drizzled it over the top. The smell of tangy lime permeated the air. 

When cutting, I found the cake’s consistency was uniform and dense, though lighter than a pound cake. As for the taste:  the flavor was very moist, outstanding delicious, and without a doubt one of the best cakes I have ever tasted.  It was not overly sweet but packed with the citrusy kick of key limes. The bakery pours lime juice on the top as the cake cools. Yum! A forkful melts in your mouth with buttery goodness and creates visions of a tropical paradise.

According to the company literature, all products are made from scratch using fresh eggs and dairy products and individually decorated.  They never cut corners or use any mixes.

I hate to admit it, but I don't think I could bake a cake this good. So,  if I want another bite, I will just have to order one from the online service.
