  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Spray Torte Pan with nonstick cooking spray with flour. Place an 8-in. (20-cm) circle of Parchment Paper in center of pan; set aside. For crust, set aside 1 cup (250 mL) of the coconut.

Combine toasted coconut, reserved coconut, eggs and sugar in Stainless (4-qt./4-L) Mixing Bowl; mix well.

  3. Meanwhile, attach open star tip to Easy Accent® Decorator; fill with 1 cup (250 mL) of the whipped topping and set aside. For filling, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and 1/3 cup (75 mL) of the lemon curd in Classic Batter Bowl; whisk until smooth. Add remaining 2 cups (500 mL) whipped topping; mix until stiff. Place remaining lemon curd into resealable plastic bag; secure bag. Slice lime into six slices; cut slices in half.
