  • Mix well and pour batter into a greased and floured bundt pan.
  • Bake according to directions on cake mix package. You may need to add a few minutes to the cook time because of the added liquid in the recipe. The cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan.
  • When the sides of the cake start to pull away from the pan, it should be cool enough to remove from the pan. Give the pan a good shake to release the bottom of the cake, then flip onto a cake stand.

To Make the Frosting

  • Combine 1 can of vanilla frosting and 1/2 package lime gelatin mix in a medium bowl. Whisk together until well mixed.
  • Scoop frosting into a decorating bag and drizzle on top of the bundt cake. Finish with sprinkles.
