Ingredients:

1 store bought loaf or round angel food cake – from 8 to (18 oz)

1/2 cup softened butter, cut into four pieces

2 large egg yolks

2 large eggs

1 cup heavy whipping cream

6 tablespoons bottled Key lime juice

2-3 teaspoons of grated lime zest

1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar, divided

1 cup sweetened flaked coconut, lightly toasted

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Equipment:

double boiler

whisk

serrated knife

plastic wrap

bowl

frying pan

Cooking instruction summary:

In the top of a double boiler, whisk together eggs, yolks, 1/2 cup of the sugar,lime juice and zest. Put the top part of the double boiler over simmering water and cook, whisking constantly and gradually adding pieces of butter until mixture reaches 160 degrees F. Strain. Taste it, and if it’s not tart enough for you feel free to add some more zest. Put a small piece of parchment over the surface and let cool completely in the refrigerator.In a large bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form. Beat in sugar and vanilla. Fold together whipped cream and lime mixture.Now it’s time to build the cake. If you’re using a loaf, you can split it into three layers, spread filling on two, stack and cover. If you are using a larger round cake (my store sells big round ones which are over a pound, you’ll only use about 2/3 of the cake. With a serrated knife, cut the cake into three layers.To make a mold, line a 9 inch round springform or high sided pan with plastic wrap. Press a layer of cake into the bottom. You’ll have an empty circle in the middle since the angel food cake was a ring. Carve a piece from one of the layers and put it in the empty space. Spread some lime filling over the bottom layer of angel cake. Add the second ring. Again, carve a piece out of the third and fill the gap. Invert the cake onto a large plate, peel away plastic, and cover with remaining lime mixture. Sprinkle toasted coconut over the whole cake and chill for about an hour or until ready to serve.

Food Joke

I had just finished visiting a friend in the hospital and stopped by a burger drive-through for lunch to eat on the way back to work. I ordered the #1 combo for $4.29. She said "that'll be $4.83, please drive forward." "$4.83? For a $4.29 meal? That's 54 cents tax!? That can't be right," my mind raced. Tax is 8 cents on the dollar in Huntsville, Alabama and for 4 dollars that would be 32 cents plus 1/3 of 8 cents would be 35 cents max. I'd heard of window workers overcharging drive through customers and skimming the money for themselves. Someone did just that to me at a Hardees couple of years ago. I didn't have my calculator watch so I got a pen and paper and did the long division since there were 2 cars ahead of me. Let's see ... 483/429 ... over 12 percent tax!? When I got to the window I handed her a 5 and said "what's the sales tax in Huntsville?" She didn't know. I said "$4.83 for a $4.29 meal is 12 percent tax. That can't be right. Can I talk to the manager?" She gave me my change and called the manager. So the manager comes over. I ask what the sales tax is in Huntsville, and she says 8 percent. I say that I just paid $4.83 for a $4.29 meal and that's over 12 percent sales tax. She got a funny look on her face and said that maybe the computer had rung it up wrong or had charged me for the biggie size . She admitted it was supposed to be 4.63, and opened the drawer to give me my extra change. "HA!" I thought to myself. "Six years engineering school has so heightened my mental mathematical adeptness that I can do percentages in my head and my superior intellect has foiled a feeble attempt by a drive-through worker to overcharge me!" So what did this mathematical wizard do next? I took the twenty cents she handed me, proud of my staggering genius, and smugly drove off without my food.
