Key Lime Cake

At the North Mississippi Teachers Conservation Workshop, Andy Chumbly, an assistant principal in the Tishomingo School district brought the second-best cake I have ever eaten. Ask me sometimes, and I'll tell you about the best. He did not claim credit for it. He said his wife baked it. The recipe follows:

Key Lime Cake

1 Box lemon cake mix
1 small box lime Jello
1 1/2 C. Vegetable Oil
1/2 Cup Orange Juice
5 eggs

4 T Conf. Sugar
1/2 C Lime Juce

1 stick margarine (softened)
1- 8 oz. Stick Cream Cheese
1 Box Conf. Sugar
1 t. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350
Mix ingredients into 3 well-greased cake pans. Bake for about 20 mins or until cake springs back in middle when touched with finger. Remove from pan and while cake is still warm, mix glaze and drizzle over layers.
Frost when cool and garnish with lime slices.
