This is one of my favorite cakes ever! If you don't own four 9-inch layer cake pans, you'll need to bake these in shifts. DO NOT use grape Jell-O mix!

This turned out VERY pretty, but we weren't a fan of the flavors. The Jello flavors tasted too artificial, and the extra dry ingredients (jello powder) made the cake dry. I would rather just add food coloring if I make this again. But such a cute idea!
- 1 (18 ounce) package white cake mix, batter prepared (or home-made white cake batter)
- 3 egg whites (or as called for by your cake mix)
- 1⁄3 cup oil (or as called for by your cake mix)

- 1 tablespoon cherry Jell-O, mix
- 1 tablespoon orange Jell-O, mix
- 1 tablespoon lime Jell-O gelatin, mix
- 1 tablespoon berries, blast jell-o mix
- 2 (16 ounce) cans frosting, 1 yellow, 1 white. (This can be substituted with 16 oz. home-made white frosting and 16 oz. home-made yellow frosting.)
