Coconut Lime Layer Cake :)

Okay - this recipe is brought to you by Land O Lakes - a beautiful and yummy cake.  Keeping in the coconut theme for November!  Which is hard since I found a recipe for sweet potato pound cake I was wishing I could share but I have to wait until Dec. for that one.  I have my Christmas cards here - need to address them and finish writing the letter and buy stamps.  I started some home decorating yesterday with my Flurryville Snowman collection!  I love those things and wish Herbergers was still producing them.  I have a bunch of them but I know I don't have all of them.....:( sad face.

Have a great day!
