Key Lime Cake

Michael tasted a Key Lime cake during the Christmas holidays.  So for his birthday he decided that's what kind he wanted.  Well I wasn't sure about a recipe for it so I looked online.   Then while at Wal-mart picking up what I needed.  There was a lady in there buying 20-30 boxes of cake mix.  I was thinking I only need one box just leave me one.  I must have had a look on my face because she said don't ask.  I said okay.  But she continued to tell me what cakes she had to make over the weekend.  So I asked her had she ever made a Key Lime Cake and she said sure this is what you need.  Same as what I had found online but so I thought I would share it with ya'll.  It reminds me of lime sherbert, and maybe that's why he like it so well.  I remember eating lime sherbert with diet sprite in it while I was pregnant with him.  Guess I wanted to watch my calories better the second time around.  With Megan they told me I needed more calcium so I ate ice cream with milk in it alot.  But paid dearly, by gaining 50 lbs while I was pregnant with her.

Key Lime Cake

1 box lemon cake mix
1 box instant lemon pudding
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup cooking oil
4 egg3-4 drops green food coloring

Mix it all together,  Bake in two round pans at 350 for 20 minutes or until done.

The recipe online called for a glaze but I used a cream cheese icing so I've put the recipe for both.


2 cups confectioners sugar
1/4 cup lime juice
Mix until smooth and drizzle over cake.

1 stick butter
1 box cream cheese
1/4 cup lime juice or enough for right consistency

Beat until smooth and spread on the top and sides of the two layers.
