Lime Green Jell-O Tomboy Cake

tomboy cake

I like the idea of tomboy cakes. The contrasting color of the cake and frosting is visible since only the tops of the layered cakes are frosted. It looks pretty and easygoing. Like a cake dressed for casual Friday.

For my 29th birthday in 2012, I chose to make a lime green jell-o cake based on a recipe I found in The Kitchn. Instead of red/pink raspberry, I chose lime green because, well… green is a nice, calming color. And I don’t remember ever making a green cake.

For this cake, I used a light-colored cream cheese frosting similar to what I used for my applesauce cake.
