Recipe of the Week: Key Lime Cake

1 pkg. Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Cake Mix
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. Key Lime juice
1 pkg. Lime Jello
1/2 c. Crisco
4 eggs
For Icing:
2 c. sifted confectioner's sugar
1/4 c. Key Lime juice
With electric mixer, blend together all ingredients (not icing ingredients) on medium speed for about 2 minutes. Pour into greased cake pan. (I used a bundt pan.) Bake at 325* for 45 minutes. After removing from oven, use an ice pick and stick through cake, top to bottom, many times. Drizzle icing while still warm.
I have no finished picture of this cake. Unfortunately, my pamming skills must not be great. Half of it came out of the pan, half remained. Next time, I'll pay better attention. It was a great-tasting cake, but be aware that it's VERY sweet! Eddie called it the "Shrek" cake because of how green it turned out. I'm going to try a cream cheese icing next time and do two round layers instead.
