Lemon Lime Cake - From the Recipe Drawer

So much for not eating out of boxes..  LOL!  
Bake the lemon cake mix following the directions on the box.  Cool thoroughly.


Two packs of lime jello, mixed with 2 cups of hot water
Poke the cake all over with a fork, 
I wasn't sure all of the jello would soak in.. it would probably do better in a cake without the "pudding in the mix", but this is what was on sale this week. I drained it off, then slowly poured it back over a second time, and it all soaked in.
Put in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.

I like this icing a lot!  Two packs of dream whip, 1 cup of milk, mix until it starts to thicken, then add vanilla & instant pudding.  Lemon pudding for this cake, but for a "regular" cake I think I would use vanilla pudding.  It's not cheap to make, dream whip is $3 a box.. but it is really good!
