This cake is light and incredible! I brought it to work and my co workers scarfed it up! I also tried it with lemon cake mix and lime jello...only unfortunately I wasn't as focused as I should of been, so the jello started to set! YIKES...I was horrified, but I whipped it and used it anyway...and we had a glorious cake striped with congealed lime jello. So DON"T panic if it happens to you...it can work out!
This cake is good. Made it last night for dessert and had a slice but It really didn't do anything for me until this morning. I was making my lunch and decided to bring a slice with me. After cutting into it there was a little left on the knife. You would have thought I was tasting it for the first time. I wanted to dig right in right then and there! Maybe I just wasn't in the mood after smelling it cook and mixing everything together but this morning was a whole different story. Great cake and easy to make! Thanks for posting!
MMMMM...GOOD!! This cake is delicious and very light. I highly recommend it. I think I will make it with strawberry jell-o and strawberry cake mix and garnish with strawberry halves.
