Instructions

  1. Prepare cake mix according to package directions
  2. Poke holes in cake with handle of spoon.  (Poke lots of holes- the more there are, the better the cake will turn out.)
  3. Evenly distribute 1/2 cup half n half/cream into the holes on the cake
  4. In large bowl, mix sweetened condensed milk and 3/4 cup half n half/cream together
  5. Working very quickly, add lime juice to mixture and pour over cake.  (Once you have added the lime to the milk mixture, the filling sets very very fast.)  Work the lime filling into all the holes with a spatula.  There will be a good amount of filling left on top of the cake.
  6. Put cake into fridge for at least and hour.
  7. Gently spread frosting/whipped cream over the top of cake.
  8. Garnish with lime zest and lime slices
