This is so easy! I love how versatile it is, you can really use homemade or any cake with any flavor jello. I did white cake with raspberry jello. I cooled the cake for 20 minutes and poured on the jello (that was fine, no need to cool all the way). Refrigerated it 4 hours then frosted with homemade whipped cream and berries. Very pretty and moist.

This cake was incredible! Very light!!! I did strawberry sugar free jello, light cool whip, and put chopped up strawberries on top. Gonna be making this again and trying new flavors.

Had not made this cake in many years, until yesterday! And it was moist, flavorful and everyone enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing!
