Any cake with more than two layers is a special celebratory cake in my cookbook. A spring green cake even more so.
At the first sign of brilliant blue skies, I start to think of making my Aunt Kathyâ€™s Lime Cake. Will it be for Easter, Motherâ€™s Day, a birthday or a bridesmaids luncheon? All of the above.
The inside of the cake gets its spring green color from a box of lime jello. Plus, the icing calls for three tablespoons of lime juice.
- 1 box Duncan Hines lemon cake mix
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- 1 3/4 cup Wesson oil
- 5 eggs
- 1 small box instant lime jello
- 5 cups powdered sugar
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla(or use homemade vanilla extract!)
- 3 Tablespoons lime juice
