Need a great birthday cake for my dad!

So due to some quirks, I am actually going to be spending my dad's birthday with him, the first time in a long while. Even better, his grandsons (my sons) will be there too. Needless to say, he's over the moon. However, I would like to go that extra step and make him an awesome birthday cake too. His dessert preferences tend to the lemon/lime spectrum, with key lime pie being his favorite dessert ever (he also has a lime juice popsicle before bed every night, regardless of season), though he also does love pistachios. Historically, his birthday cake was always a lemon cake from a box with lemon frosting, but I've gotten more adventurous in my baking (I haven't used a cake from a box in years, though I do still find them tasty) and so I'm sure I can top that this year, but what I'd love is your suggestions. He is ambivalent about frosting (though it is my 3 year old's favorite part, though he will be happy if I put ice cream or whipped cream on his slice, even if there is no frosting).
So hit me with your best lemon or lime cake things to make my old dad happy!
