Delicious cake!!! The Jello takes the easy, ordinary cake from the box and makes it extraordinary! The cake is moist, fresh and so yummy with the whipped topping! I've made it for two parties now and all loved it. I make it with strawberry Jello. So good!
not sweet enough for my family....would use bigger object to poke holes in the cake- like an unsharpened pencil covered with plastic- the gelatin didnt fall deep enough into the cake. It was "ok" but I dont think I will be making this again.
I made this cake yesterday and it is so easy to put together. I thought it could've been a little more flavorful. I used strawberry gelatin and I was really hoping to taste more of the strawberry gelatin but I have to say it is a very moist cake and it does look pretty! I also like the fact that it's a refrigerated box cake so it's nice and cold on a hot summer day. My family enjoyed it. Next time maybe I'll reduce the water a little bit to make the gelatin flavor more concentrated. Thanks for the great and easy recipe!!
I love this cake, it's so refreshing and looks so pretty. I have had it with various Jello flavors, my mom made this for us when we were growing up. Red jello and the new pink strawberry Cool Whip would make a beautiful dessert. Kaye
Ahhhhhh, reminds me of my grammy's "jello" cake! She used a yellow cake mix baked as directed. Once cooled, poke holes throughout the cake with the back of a wooden spoon. Make the jello as directed then pour over the cake. (She always used cherry jello). I don't remember if she let the jello set before topping. I don't and it sets just fine in the frig. For the "icing" -she'd make pistachio pudding with 1 package of dream whip added in then make as directed on pudding box. When the pudding was ready, she'd "slather" on top of the cake then refrigerate. This was my 2nd most requested food item (the first being her peach cobbler). I hovered around the frig until time to get it out. LOL I've made a few times for my kids but they don't care much for it. I've used various flavors of jello but prefer cherry / pistachio combo - just like Grammy made.
I made this for my daughters bday party as an alt to the super sweet kids cake. The adults loved it!!! The whole cake went in no time. I used strawberry cake and fruit punch jello. I also used the cool whip topping but also used diced fresh strawberries (lightly coated with lemon juice and sprinkle of sweet n low) then added chopped vanilla wafers at the very end. It was incredible!!!!
Love it, so moist. I mix vanilla whipped icing with the cool whip before I frost the cake....makes it easier to spread and tastes delicious.
They used to serve this cake in the cafeteria when I was in highschool, and I had been craving items from my highschool lunches. I know it sounds weird, but I loooved cafeteria food. Especially these things called fiestadas, but anyways, this cake hit the spot! It's simple to make, but sooooo good!!!
