Key Lime Cake Ingredients: Box Cake Mix, Lime Jello, Oil, Orange Juice and Eggs
Two key ingredients in the recipe are Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Cake Mix and lime Jello. You will also need oil, orange juice and 5 eggs. The cream cheese frosting has cream cheese, butter, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla. Allow an hour to prepare and bake the cake. After that it should cool before you frost it. For that special touch, add slices of lime to the top of the cake.
Mint Green and Gold Cake
To adapt the green key lime cake to go with a bridal shower cake, anniversary cake, birthday cake, or baby shower cake that needs to be mint green and gold, purchase edible gold leaves or edible gold flakes for designs for the occasion. Easy to do and elegant results!
