1 box (4-serving size) strawberry-flavored gelatin
1 tablespoon grated lime peel
1 to 2 teaspoons rum extract

Lime Frosting
1 container (1 lb) Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting

Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with shortening and lightly flour, or spray with baking spray with flour. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, eggs, gelatin, 1 tablespoon lime peel and the rum extract with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

Stir 2 teaspoons lime peel into frosting. Spread frosting evenly over cake. Store loosely covered at room temperature. Just before serving, cut each whole strawberry in half, leaving leaves on. Garnish cake with strawberry halves
