I made this for my fiance's birthday(he is diabetic by the way)I took the regular box of white cake mix andinstead of the regular pudding and jello I used sugar free. He said it was the best cake he had in a long time. To tell you the truth you really couldn't even tell it was sugar free.

This was just okay. I used orange jell-o, and there just wasn't much flavor. Unfortunately, most of this cake did not get eaten, but it did look pretty.

I made this cake using strawberry flavored jello for my son's birthday. The kids loved it, and it was gone in a matter of minutes. It is an extremely moist, delicious cake. I can't wait to experiment with different flavored cake mix, pudding, and jello. I think a chocolate cake mix, chocolate pudding, and black cherry flavored jello would be fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!

This turned out really well. I poked holes with a wooden spoon instead of the fork tines and so when the cake is cut, there are spots with the jello and some without. I thought it looked better this way. Very good cake.

I flipping love this cake. It is sooo easy to make and sooo delicious. If you want to make it even better you must sugar your greased baking pan, not flour it.

I thought that it was a very good recipe. Although, it was very sweet, between the cool whip and extra pudding. I think that there may be a little too much cool whip for my taste. But, I did like the extra pudding in the cake because it made it very moist. Instead of using white cake, I used strawberry cake for valentine's day. I also used strawberry jello. Every body who ate it loved it.

This cake is really moist and delicious! I "frosted" it with Redi-Wip to make the top of the cake pretty. Garnishing the top with slices or pieces of real fruit associated with the Jell-O flavor you're using would look nice, too. The next flavor I'm going to try is lime.
