This is very similar to my recipe, except I use one small box of Jello with a coordinating 12 ounce soda pop. ONLY. no water. I always make it for bbq's! EVERYONE loves this refrigerated cake on a hot day. Even had a 'chef in training' compliment this cake!

I was really disappointed after reading all the great reviews...but the cake turned out very soggy. I don't know what went wrong, but I followed the directions.

I have made this for years! ORANGE is fantastic, try this substitute. (To clarify a prior question substitute the cold water in the jello mix with cold pop. I always use a can of sunkist, mix 1/2 in with the jello and just pour the other half over the top as well. I make it in a regular cake pan, one layer, with no whole fruit. It keeps a little better and is a huge hit. Tastes like a wonderfully yummy cream sickle. YUM... Regular cake pan makes it a bit easier to make, very quick and clean...easy to store in the fridge as well. :)

I took this to a summer cookout. It was a huge hit. I added fresh strawberry slices and made it as a layered round cake. I also added fresh strawberries as embellishment.

GREAT RECIPE! I made this several times with several different jello and pops. Everyone request this at potlucks. It is fun to use different flavors for different holidays also.

I used two square pans and covered with frosting and fresh strawberries between layers. Its not only good, its looks really pretty.

Super moist extremely delicious cake! I am not a cake eater and this was excellent. I made two for a church function and the second one we chose to use orange jello and soda and it turned out awesome! I would like to try raspberry if I can find such a thing as raspberry soda. I was a little scared at the amount of liquid I was pouring into the cake. It was my mom's idea to serve the cake on little plates drizzled with chocolate syrup before placing a slice of cake on it and it gave a wonderful presentable effect. Will keep this recipe!
