This Green Angel Lime Cake recipe is based on a traditional angel food cake, but gets a little extra zip from the addition of green lime flavor Jello – then the whole thing is slathered in a light fluffy fruit-flavored frosting.

You can swap out gelatin flavors in both the cake and the frosting if you want something different — maybe a pink raspberry cake with a yellow lemon frosting? Or at Christmas, you could use strawberry or cherry instead of the lime inside the angel cake. So many choices!
