Easy Dinner Recipes: Key Lime Angel Food Cake

Ok so it's not an easy dinner recipe but yum and easy still apply... I baked this one last weekend for a friend's birthday and everyone went nuts over it.  The lightness of the angel food cake mixed with a little tart - well it just works.

1 1/4cups cold water
1can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1/3cup Key lime or regular lime juice
1teaspoon grated lime peel
1container (12 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1cup flaked coconut

Sliced kiwifruit and strawberries, if desired
1.Make cake mix as directed on package, using cold water. Cool cake completely. Cut cake horizontally into 3 layers. Place bottom layer, cut side up, on serving plate.
2.In large bowl, beat milk, lime juice and lime peel with wire whisk until smooth and thickened. Fold in whipped topping.
3.Spread 1 cup lime mixture evenly over top of first layer of cake. Place second layer of cake carefully on bottom layer; spread evenly with 1 cup lime mixture. Top with remaining layer of cake.
