CAKE
1
box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix
1 1/4
cups lemon-lime soda
1/3
cup vegetable oil
3
egg whites
1
tablespoon grated lime peel
1
box (4-serving size) cherry-flavored gelatin
1
cup boiling water
Frosting
1
container Betty Crocker® Whipped fluffy white frosting
1
teaspoon grated lime peel
Maraschino cherries, if desired
Lime peel twists, if desired
  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with baking spray with flour.
  2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, soda, oil, egg whites and 1 tablespoon grated lime peel with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.
  3. Bake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool 20 minutes.
