Hi, it’s me Lily – again!

Today is my last soccer game, and I’m super duper excited. We have won most of our games, and most of the people on my team are at my school so I see them there too. I’ll be sad soccer is ending, but I had so much fun playing!

Speaking of things ending, school ends next week. Our end of the year party is this Thursday and it’s Star Wars theme. My mom is helping and she bought pool noodles so we could make light sabers. It’s going to be so much fun!! I’m really sad to say bye to my friends, but I’m excited to make new friends in Arizona. 😉

Today, I want to share with you a new recipe for Lime Sheet Cake. Remember the Lemon Sheet Cake, Strawberry Sheet Cake and Cherry Sheet Cake we’ve shared over the last few months? My mom is on sheet cake fix, so we tried one with limes. I really like limes, so I thought it was delicious!!

Here is the recipe:

    How much buttermilk does the recipe call for? I do not see it in the list of ingredients.

    Thank you Lily for your email and recipe. I will make sometime this summer. I have lot going on right now with moving. Have a fun summer.

    This looks yummy! My husband loves stuff like this, so I’m gonna have to try it out. Do you think a 9×13 pan will work OK? Don’t think I have a 11×16.

    Kind of confusing…. From the stand point of a retired kitchen manager and restaurant manager… I would clarify you description of “instant jello.” When I first looked at the recipe… I thought instant jello referred to “PUDDING”…. but when looking at all the variations of this cake and search the internet of current jello flavors… it is my guess that you are using “GELATIN”… and is it regular or sugar free?? PLEASE ADVISE if I am correct.

    confusing… first it says jello, then pudding. Also, doesn’t say anywhere when or where you put in the lime juice… (I’m guessing with the cake mix since the cake turns green…)

    All these sound so yummy. I did notice on the Lime Sheet Cake that there was a typing error.
    Under ingredients for the frosting:
    1 TB lime juice (you can use more if you want more lemon taste) NOTICE it says more LEMON and I’m sure you mean Lime.

    what is lime zest ???

      Marion Wood,
      Lime zest is the outer green layer of the lime peel. You can use a micro-plane zester or a fine grater, or even a peeler to get it. Just make sure that you don’t go to deep into the peel. You don’t want the whiter part, just the green on the surface. Hope this info helps. 😀

    Please let me know if I am supposed to add the juice of one lime in with the cake mix since it looks like it is listed as part of the cake but is not mentioned in the cake instructions. Thanks, I can’t wait to try this!

      Oh, yes..you add it with the cake ingredients in step 3. Sorry, about that! I’ll have to fix it. Let me know what you think of this cake! We love it!

        This cake was delicious! I have been buying cakes for birthdays for the last couple of years but this recipe inspired me to bake and decorate a cake for my husband’s birthday. It was a lot of work (the decorating part mostly) but it tasted so much better than store bought.

    I have three grandsons and they were all over the Key Lime Cup Cakes I made. They wanted to start to eat them before the icing went on. But I won in the end and was happy to see them happy. The color was vibrant, strong and had good eye appeal. I will make them over and over. Granny can do no harm as long as these cupcakes are seen.
