Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 1 triple layer cake
  • 1 (15-16 ounce) package lemon cake mix
  • 1⅓ cups vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 (3 ounce) package lime flavored Jell-O mix
  • ¾ cup orange juice without pulp
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 (8 ounce) package regular cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons fresh key lime juice (fresh or bottled)
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  1. Combine cake mix, Jello mix, oil, eggs and orange juice and mix until well incorporated.
  2. Pour into three 8 inch cake pans. Bake according to instructions on box. Allow to cool completely, then frost.
  1. In a large bowl, beat the butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy.
  2. Add lime juice and powdered sugar. Mix well until no lumps remain.
  3. I suggest refrigerating the icing 20-30 minutes prior to icing the cake so that it firms up a bit, if time allows. Use an offset icing spatula to make it easy to frost.
  4. Enjoy!
