  4. Bake and cool and directed on box.
  5. Gently stir lime peel into whipped topping; spread over top of cake.

High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Add enough water to drink mix to measure 1 1/2 cups. Follow High Altitude cake mix directions for 13 x 9-inch pan.

Chocolate frozen whipped topping also makes a great "frosting" for this dreamy cake. Stir orange peel instead of lime into the chocolate topping.

Before grating the lime peel, wash the lime thoroughly and wipe dry. The peel will grate much easier.
