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.

Special Equipment Needed

Size Wise

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


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.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I would make it again with major changes. I would make it again with major changes. I would make the cake from scratch instead of using a box mix (which was awful). I would double the frosting. It appeared to be enough until I went to serve it. The frosting had settled and soaked into the cake. It was not a pleasant consistantcy and too much cake. I liked the flavor of the frosting so with the major changes I would try it again. By the way, the box mix made two thin layers so there was no way to make 4 layers out of this and the cake fell apart easily. Box mixes are pretty nasty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from i made these for father's day. i made these for father's day. I made them into cupcakes instead of a cake. there was plenty of frosting for the cupcakes. I thought they tasted good-maybe a little too 'cream cheesy' for me though. there were some leftovers that never got eaten and we had to throw them away-so they weren't to die for!

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!
