Just made this for my dad's birthday and it brought down the house! So good. I've made a similar version before, and here are the tweaks I made: First, use an all-natural jello from whole foods or somewhere to avoid the shocking pink color (and improve taste). Instead of water I use 6 oz. Greek Yogurt or buttermilk - makes cakes moist (and just add a bit of sugar to counteract the sourness). I used a bit less oil (3/4c) because esp. with the yogurt it really doesn't need a full cup (and I'm not one to skimp). I add 1/2 each of chopped pecans and unsweetened coconut - a nice texture/taste addition. Finally, for the frosting, I needed another cup of confectioner sugar to stiffen it up, and it was extremely sweet, so I folded in 1.5 cups of whipping cream (whipped to stiff peaks)- so yummy!!!
