I came across this recipe and would love to try it for Father’s Day.  Do you bake?  What type of cakes do you bake?  Do you use cake mix to save on time?

1
box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix
1 1/4
cups water
1
tablespoon vegetable oil
4
eggs
Key Lime Filling
1
can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
3/4
cup whipping cream
1/2
cup Key lime juice or regular lime juice
1
teaspoon grated lime peel

1.
Heat oven to 350°F for shiny metal or glass pan (or 325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13×9-inch pan with baking spray with flour.
2.
In large bowl, beat cake ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.
3.
Bake 26 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. With handle of wooden spoon (1/4 to 1/2 inch in diameter), poke holes almost to bottom of cake every 1/2 inch, wiping spoon handle occasionally to reduce sticking.
4.
In medium bowl, stir together filling ingredients (mixture will thicken). Pour over cake; spread evenly over surface, working back and forth to fill holes. (Some filling should remain on top of cake.) Refrigerate 1 hour.
5.
Spread frosting over cake; sprinkle with lime peel. Garnish with strawberries, lime slices and lemon leaves. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.
