Key Lime Cake

a.k.a. "Shrek Cake"

This is one of the best cakes EVER!  It could be made using any flavor of jello, I suppose.  My sweet kids, as toddlers, called this "Shrek Cake" because of the color.  It tastes AMAZING, it's very MOIST!!!

1 box lemon cake mix
1 6 oz. box lime jello (powder)
3/4 cup orange juice
5 eggs
1 1/3 cup oil

1/2 cup butter
1 8 oz cream cheese
1 lb powdered sugar
chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine cake mix and jello (powder).  Add orange juice and mix.  Add one egg at  a time, mixing between each.  Add oil and mix well.  Bake 20-30 minutes.
Ice cake when completely cool.
