Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 2 (9-inch) round layers. Cool in pans 10 min.; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely.
  • Grate zest and squeeze juice from 1 lime. Beat cream cheese, sugar and lime juice in medium bowl with mixer until blended. Add COOL WHIP, lime zest and 1/3 cup coconut; stir gently until blended.
  • Cut cake layers horizontally in half. Stack cake layers on plate, spreading 1/3 cup COOL WHIP mixture between each layer. Frost top and side of cake with remaining COOL WHIP mixture. Gently press remaining coconut into side of cake.
  • Slice remaining lime; use to garnish cake just before serving.

Size Wise

Sweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.

Substitute

Substitute lemons for the limes, using just 1/4 cup of the lemon juice to prepare frosting.

Special Extra

Ensure easy removal of cake layers by covering bottoms of cake pans with circles of parchment paper before filling with batter.

Toasted Coconut-Lime Cake

Adding toasted coconut to the cake will add crunch and intensify the coconut flavor. To toast coconut in the oven, spread coconut in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake in 350°F oven 7 to 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.

Make Ahead

Both the cake and frosting can be prepared in advance. Refrigerate, separately, up to 24 hours before frosting and garnishing cake before serving.

How to Store

Keep frosted cake refrigerated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolutely delicious cake. An absolutely delicious cake. This is my go to birthday cake, and I've been lucky enough to enjoy it on my own birthday. Nothing has yet to beat this delicious cake recipe! It's true that frosting can run a bit low, but as long as you keep the middle layer of frosting thin, no problems!
