  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease four 9-inch round cake pans.

  2. In a bowl, beat together 1 cake mix, 3 eggs, lime margarita, and ¼ cup melted butter until smooth. Divide batter between 2 pans and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted comes out clean. Cool in pans for 20 minutes.

  5. Level tops of cakes with a serrated knife. Set a key lime layer on a platter and spread some frosting on top. Set a strawberry layer on it and frost top. Repeat, alternating layers, setting last one bottom side up. Frost top and sides smoothly. Pipe stars around bottom edge of cake with reserved frosting. Spread toasted coconut on center of cake.
