MYO Strawberry-Lime Daiquiri Poke Cake – this one is for the Adults!
1 white cake mix
2 tablespoons grated lime peel (prepared the cake as directed on the box, but add the lime zest!) (or in the homemade recipe)
1 cup water
2/3 cup light rum
1/3 cup fresh lime juice (from 2 limes)
2 boxes (4-serving size each) strawberry- or strawberry Daiquiri-flavored gelatin
2 1/2 cups vanilla frosting (from 2 containers)
Strawberries and lime slices, if desired
Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for two 8-inch round pans, adding grated lime peel to batter. Remove from pan to cooling rack; cool completely, about 1 hour. Wash and dry cake pans.
2 Return cooled cake layers to clean 8-inch round pans. With thin stirring straw, toothpick or skewer, pierce cakes at 1/2-inch intervals.
3 In 1-quart saucepan, heat 1 cup water to boiling. Remove from heat; stir in rum, lime juice and gelatin. Stir until completely dissolved. Spoon half of gelatin mixture over each cake. Refrigerate 1 to 3 hours to allow gelatin to set in cakes.
4 To remove cakes from pans, dip pans in warm water 10 seconds. Unmold 1 cake onto serving platter; spread about 1 cup frosting on top of cake. Unmold second cake; carefully place on first cake on platter.
5 Frost side and top of cake with remaining frosting. Refrigerate 1 hour before serving. Garnish with strawberries and lime. Loosely cover and refrigerate any remaining cake.

I’m not the ‘baker’ in the family, but I think that I can handle this! LOL!

Oh My, that sounds divine! I think I’ll use the homemade cake mix from the site here though, we generally don’t purchase cake mix boxes any longer due to the weird ingredients in them.
