This is also an old family tradition, we call it Jello cake. My personal favorite combo is lemon cake, lime jello, and some lemon pudding mixed in with the whipped cream to top it off. Yum yum, I make it all the time. It has a surprisingly refreshing taste.
My mom used to make this for us all the time. She wouldn't make a double layer though, just one layer in a 13 x 9 dish. Or she would make "Purple Poke Cake" with a blackberry jello, etc. You can use almost any kind of jello with cool whip. Very good stuff!
This is a blast from my past...
My Mom used to make this Jello cake for each of us on our birthday.
My brother and I were just talking about this a couple of weeks ago. It was something we always looked forward to.
We used to have what we called "Jello Cake" at school. it was one of the only things the school made everyone liked! I ended up telling my mom about it and we made some at our house. Very delicious!
My family has always enjoyed this cake as anytime - though we usually just keep both layers strawberry or cherry JELL-O. We've always called it Bleeding Cake. It was actually my wedding cake! It's delish!
This is an old family favorite. We make this every holiday and just change up the colors. Cherry and Blue Raspberry with the whip topping makes a beautiful 4th of July cake, Orange and Lime for Halloween, Cherry and Lime for Christmas the possiblities are endless and YUMMY! Have fun.
We always called this "Jello Cake." And we used different colors for different holidays. Fourth of July, we'd use red and blue jello, and then on top of the whip cream we'd put fresh cut strawberries. I was a picky kid growing up, and this was the only cake that I liked!
