Kelly has a love for Key Lime Pie, so I put together a Key Lime Cake recipe from a few I found online.  Hope you get a chance to stop in this weekend and give it a try. Very moist, tart, and sweet!

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add cake mix and gelatin and softly beat to remove lumps.
  3. Add Oil, orange juice, and eggs and beat till smooth. Add Key Lime Juice and Vanilla and again, beat till smooth.
  4. Add some Key Lime Zest for a little extra boost of flavor.
  5. Pour into lightly sprayed cake pan and cook for approximately 25 minutes, checking to be sure it doesn't over brown the edges, until toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Frosting Instructions
  7. Blend room temperature butter and cream cheese together until smooth.
  8. Add confection sugar and blend till smooth. Might want to add 1/2, blend, and then add remaining.
  9. Add Key Lime Juice and Vanilla and blend till smooth.
  10. Add some Key Lime Zest for a little extra boost of flavor.
  11. Frost a Cool Cake and refrigerate until ready to serve.
