My family has had this cake for YEARS at every holiday or other get-together in the summer! You can use any variation you want! I cut some of the milk to make the topping a bit thicker, and I use yellow cake, with cherry jello and Faygo Redpop. SO many variation possibilities with this recipe! I love it!

This cake is so versatile. I change anyone of 2 or 3 all 4 of these ingredients (cake, soda pop, jello, pudding) and have a totally different cake, depending on what occasion I need a desert!

Delicious! I had my doubts about using the big box of jello but it turned out great. Meant to take a picture but it was eaten before I had a chance. Next time!

GREAT versatile recipe. This is most requested recipe this summer. I have made it with several different flavors of jello and they were all great. Fun recipe!

This is a very versatile cake. I think it is great for kids, but not for adults with developed palates. It would be a great summer treat for everyone. I made it for superbowl makingit in Chicago colors. I guess we had too much other food because no one really touched it. I may try again in the future.

MARVELOUS!!! I made this for Valentines and my husband and I ate this whole cake in just a few days. It was moist and full of flavor. Can't wait to make it again!!

I used a yellow cake mix and orange Jello. The "frosting" only needed one cup of milk--two would have made it too runny. I topped the cake with drained mandarin oranges. Not for adults--psh. This is my go-to summer cake. Any kind of jello or soda you use, it always turns out fantastic. My family LOVES this dessert, the adults especially.
