Strawberry Lime Daiquiri Cake - FF and It's A Heat Wave

So much has been going on. Potato May just turned 18 and on June 11th he will
graduate. Hard to believe but it's true. Last year I asked him what type of cake he wanted and I made him a strawberry cake with fresh whipped banana frosting topped with silver glitter edible sprinkles and animal print candles. Yes, he is a little "far out" and absolutely loved it. This year he said he still wanted strawberry but not sure what else. So, I made him a strawberry lime daiquiri cake with lime fluffy frosting. I went a little crazy on the frosting but DANG it was good!! Potato May LOVED it and you'll see in the second photo, he was smelling it. He's so funny, he will smell stuff before eating it. While I'm cooking he drives me nuts, he always come in and wants to know if he can open the lid and smell.
If you've been around long, you'll be wondering just what in the Sam Hill has gotten into me? I know, seems like everything I've baked lately has had alcohol in it. Oh well, it's been REALLY good! Thankfully like the amaretto coke chocolate cake he loved this too. I'm on a roll.

3. "Hey Whit, why don't you pour the water on your head?" Said her mommy. "Okay" then she plopped her head IN the bucket.
4. TA DA I can stand on my head in the water mommy!
5. NO it is NOT for the rubber ducky! It is for my head!
