Now I’m not someone that has a huge sweet tooth. I prefer savory over sweet but this dessert isn’t overly sweet. There is a good balance.

The printable recipe card is at the bottom of the post! You’ll want to print this out as there are several steps. 

Ingredients:

1 16 oz frozen Sarah Lee pound cake
3 limes
1 cup milk
8 oz sour cream
16 oz Cool Whip
2 boxes powdered lime JELL-O (3 oz each)

Directions:

– In a large mixing bowl whisk together your milk and sour cream.
– Add to that mixture your two boxes of powdered lime JELL-O and whisk to combine.
– Fold 8 oz of Cool Whip into your lime mixture reserving the other 8 oz for trifle assembly.
– Put the lime mixture into the fridge to set.
– Take your frozen pound cake and with a serrated knife cut off all of the dark edges.
– Cut your frozen pound cake into 1-inch cubes. It’s easier to cut the pound cake when it is still frozen.
– Slice two of your fresh limes for garnish.

This dessert is all about presentation so you want all of the layers to be even and visible.

When you are adding each layer be sure to start by placing them around the edges of your trifle bowl first and then work your way into the middle.

You’ll want the outside of the bowl to look the prettiest since it’s visible through the glass.

After reading your blog post, I browsed your website a bit and noticed you aren’t ranking nearly as well in Google as you could be. I possess a handful of blogs myself, and I think you should take a look at "seowebsitetrafficnettools", just google it. You’ll find it’s a very lovely SEO tool that can bring you a lot more visitors and improve your ranking. They have more than 30+ tools only 20$. Very cheap right? Keep up the quality posts
