This was very moist and came right out of the pan nicely. A beautiful bright red topping. But it was extremely sweet. If I make it again, I will cut back on the marshmallows or sugar.

Comes out of the pan very easily. My family didn't care for the taste. They would have preferred fresh strawberries instead of the strawberry jello.

I have had this recipe for years. My family loved it and took it to church suppers every year and the people, even thos who do not like rhubarb, raved about it.

This was a great recipes, my son loved it. I used the fruit flavored mini marshmellows and that added a little more flavor. Was very good.

This was a good recipe but I would use more rhubarb and add some strawberries. It was a little dry on top. Very sweet.

This was a wonderful way to use up all that rhubarb. The cake was light as air, and it was especially tastey with strawberry swirl icecream on top.

Love this recipe. Use it every summer and always get asked for the recipe.

Everyone enjoyed this easy dessert. I used a scant 1/2 cup of sugar because I knew it would be too sweet for our tastes and this worked out very well. I like the ease in making this dessert but cake mixes always have a processed taste to me so I probably won’t be making this again.
