Hide Images
  • 1
    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.

Expert Tips

  • Light rum works best in this recipe to give a light flavor, but you could use dark or spiced rum in a pinch.
  • Putting the cakes back in the pans helps to reduce clean up later and give the cake more stability while it sets up.
