Coconut Lime Cake

White says clean and summer to me and add a bit of lime and its states refreshing too. Why not change an ordinary cake into extraordinary. My cousin loves the flavor of lime and didn't really want to make a key lime pie, so I transformed my white box cake into something delicious.

1 box of white cake mix
1 lime, grated (should give you about 2 tsp.)
1 container of white of frosting
1 tsp. of lime extract
1 bag of coconut flakes

Make the cake as directed on box, but add in 1 tsp. of grated lime. Bake in 2 8 or 9 inch pans. When done, cool thoroughly. Remove frosting from container and add in lime extract and the remaining grated lime. Blend well.

Remove cakes from pans and set on cake plate. Spread thin layer of frosting on top layer and set other cake on top. Frost whole cake and coat with coconut flakes.

I have 2 tips. Use a large spatula knife to frost the cake, do not use a butter knife. For the frosting, this is always a messy process. The top is easy as you can just sprinkle the flakes directly on top, but the sides you must place in the palm of your hand a firmly, but gently place on sides of the cake. I would then place in refrigerator until ready to serve. A colder cake is always nice in the hotter months.
