"Mama, I want to make the cake like one of the Thiebaud cakes from Caitlin's book."
"What does that mean?"
"Vanilla cake with layers and filling inside."
"What kind of filling?"
"Can I use your lime curd?"
"The lime jelly?
"I want bright green frosting. And I mean BRIGHT green."
Her plan: 2 batches of Rose’s Downy Yellow Butter Cake, cut to make a total of 4 layers, filled with lime jelly and frosted with BRIGHT green buttercream, plus a few sprinkles for good measure.

|Leftovers. The jelly helps keep the cake moist.|
