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.

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.

    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!

    It was so good, that I ate almost the hole cake by myself. believe it or not I am not a big cake eater. To tell the truth some how, I am afraid by making it the same thing might happend again.

    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!
