  • Make cake: Beat cake mix, oil, orange juice, eggs, and gelatin mix in a large bowl until well combined. Pour into the prepared cake pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cake layer comes out clean, 16 to 18 minutes. Allow cake layers to cool completely.

  • Meanwhile, make frosting: Beat cream cheese and butter in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add confectioners' sugar and lime juice; mix until well combined.

  • Fill and frost cooled cake layers.
