Key Lime WOW

SO I MUST share this recipe with you all.............I have made this twice in about 3 weeks due to the begging and pleading for this cake from my family!!! I mean wow, I was so excited that everyone loved this soo much and I know your family will too! Believe it or not this is a Trish Yearwood recipe ( I love her cookbook)......
Key Lime Cake!!!!

1 3-oz package lime-flavored gelatin
1⅓ cups granulated sugar
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
5 large eggs, slightly beaten
1½ cups vegetable oil
¾ cup orange juice
1 Tbsp lemon juice
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ cup Key lime juice (from about 25 small Key limes or 4 large regular limes)
½ cup confectioners' sugar


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour three 9-inch-round cake pans.


2. In a large mixing bowl, mix the gelatin, sugar, flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir to mix well. Add the eggs, oil, orange juice, lemon juice, and vanilla. Divide the batter evenly among the 3 pans and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Test for doneness by lightly touching the tops of the layers or inserting a toothpick. Cool the layers in the pans for 5 minutes, then turn them out onto racks.


3. While the layers are still hot, mix the lime juice and confectioners' sugar and pour it over the layers on the racks. You can pierce the layers with a fork to allow the glaze to soak in better. Allow the layers to cool completely as you prepare the icing.


CREAM CHEESE ICING
½ cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
1 (8-oz) package cream cheese, room temperature
1 (1-lb) box confectioners' sugar


1. Cream the butter and cream cheese. Beat in the confectioners' sugar until the mixture is smooth and easy to spread. Spread the icing between the layers and on the top and sides of the cake.


Note: The cream cheese icing is optional. This cake is beautiful and tastes great with just the glaze poured over it. 
And now that you have seen the amazing picture from the cookbook above here is what this cake looks like in real life!! ha...........................

That sounds so amazing! You know that feeling when you look at something tart like a bag of sour patch kids and your jaw clenches and mouth waters? As soon as I saw the headline for your post that happened to me and I knew this cake and I were meant to be together ;)

Your cake looks wonderful, and the slice of lime on top it just the key (no pun intended). My dear friend Mindy is begging me to make this cake for her belated birthday. I'm glad someone tried it before I did. :-)
