Key Lime poke cake

For Mothers day dinner I decided to make the dessert. I decided on this Key lime poke cake!  It was yummy and light and just the right summer taste to it!!

  • 1box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix
  • 1 1/4
  • cups water
  • 1tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4eggs
  • Key Lime Filling
  • 1can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
  • 3/4cup whipping cream
  • 1/2cup Key lime juice or regular lime juice
  • 1teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 4drops yellow food color
  • 1drop green food color
  • Frosting  I found on this website
    • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks or 1/2 pound), softened (but not melted!) Ideal texture should be like ice cream.
    • 3-4 cups confectioners (powdered) sugar, SIFTED
    • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • up to 4 tablespoons milk or heavy cream
    1. Beat butter for a few minutes with a mixer with the paddle attachment on medium speed. Add 3 cups of powdered sugar and turn your mixer on the lowest speed (so the sugar doesn’t blow everywhere) until the sugar has been incorporated with the butter. Increase mixer speed to medium and add vanilla extract, salt, and 2 tablespoons of milk/cream and beat for 3 minutes. If your frosting needs a more stiff consistency, add remaining sugar. If your frosting needs to be thinned out, add remaining milk 1 tablespoons at a time.
    Garnish, If Desired
    Fresh strawberries
    Key lime slices
