I used a yellow cake mix, because it had reduced sugar (sweetened with splenda). I also wanted to add a coconut flavor, so I used coconut creme pudding mix, added a tsp of coconut flavoring, and in between light drizzles of glaze I sprinkled shredded coconut on top. I used 1% fat milk instead of water, and the cake turned out yummy and moist. I also doubled the amount of lime juice in the cake and added an extra tbls to the glaze. the glaze was very limey yummy, but the cake, to me, wasn't as much (maybe because I used yellow instead of white?). my friends that tried it gave it a thumbs up, saying you don't want too much lime and that they liked it. I have a key lime tree, so was looking for recipes to use them up! The next time, I might try coconut milk instead of water/regular milk for a truly decadent cake. I can't wait to take the leftovers to work tomorrow and see how it goes over with that crowd. It's the day after, and the cake is still incredibly moist.
