Surprisingly good and out-of-control easy, I made this cake after one of my co-workers couldn't stop raving about how amazing Jell-O cake is. Naturally, I took it upon myself to try. He swore pudding shouldn't be used, so I left it out, but other users seemed to love that addition. I also used a whipped cream cheese frosting for the topping (recipe # 187817) and they went together SO well. I'd make this cake again and I'd definitely recommend cherry Jell-O.

I made this with some modifications: Used a bigger pan, 15x10; and instead of two separate toppings of pudding and cool whip I followed the directions on the pudding box to make "Angel Lush". And then spead that on top of the cake. Simple and DELICIOUS!!!

This was delicious! I added too much jello though which is not your fault at all just because i didn't read the directions right. It would have been better with less jello like you have posted in the recipe but it was still very very good. I used cherry jello instead of strawberry. I will be making this again but next time I will follow the directions. Thank you for a great recipe!
