Ingredients
Instructions
  1. When cake is baked and cooled, use the end of a wooden spoon or a chopstick to poke holes all over the cake about an inch apart.
  2. Add Jello powder to boiling water, and stir for about two minutes until dissolved completely. Stir in cold water and juice of half the lime (about a tablespoon). Evenly pour liquid Jello mixture all over cake. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  3. Stir together frosting, juice of the other half of lime (about a tablespoon), and food coloring. First, spread a small amount of frosting over the cake, pressing it into all the holes. Evenly spread the remaining frosting over the cake, and serve.
Recipe Notes
  • Feel free to use homemade cake and a basic buttercream frosting instead if you prefer.
  • I used gluten-free cake mix, which makes a 9″ cake. If using a standard cake mix, this recipe will work with a 9 x 13″ cake as well.
