Heat the oven to 350℉ and grease a round 8" springform pan and set it aside.
In a large bowl combine all of the "Dry Ingredients" and mix until well incorporated. Set bowl aside. In a separate bowl, whisk all of the "Wet Ingredients" until well incorporated. Whisking and slowly begin to pour the wet ingredients mix into the dry ingredients, keep whisking until you have a smooth bater with no lumps.
Pour the batter into the greased pan, place in center of oven and bake for 30 minutes. Text doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center to make sure it's baked through. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before releasing the spring and cake.
Make The Frosting:
Place all of the "Frosting Ingredients" into a large bowl and use a hand mixer to whip the frosting until it's light and fluffy. I wanted my "frosting" to be more "lemony" so I added another tablespoon of the freshly squeezed lime juice -- notice that this will thin down the frosting and turn it into more of a glaze, it's up to you and both taste amazing. Place the frosting in the fridge until ready to use.
Decorate The Cake:
Once the cake has completely cooled through, spread as much frosting/glaze as you'd like. You may have a good amount left if you go light on the decorating. Decorate the top with a couple of thin lime slices and some fresh lime zest. Serve and enjoy!
Adapted from DessertsForTwo.comMini Lemon Cakes* Test the potency of your baking soda by mixing a little bit with some lime juice. You want it to start bubbling like crazy, otherwise you'll need new fresh baking soda. ** I left the butter out for too long, so it was quite soft, this will also help in giving you more of a glaze than a thick frosting.***The cake itself is vegan but the frosting uses cream cheese and butter, but if you have dairy-free versions available I think you could make the cake 100% vegan.
