Jello Cake

Jello Cake created by Jonathan Melendez

This is the moistest cake you will ever eat. I love it with strawberry jello and garnished with fresh strawberries. The Cool Whip makes such a pretty pure white and creamy frosting. It was my mom's favorite birthday cake. Prep time is also chill time

    This is an easy dessert to make when you want a sweet treat without much effort...sure you have to wait a while for the jello to soak and the cake to chill, but as far as making it, it doesn't take that much work at all. I highly recommend you give it a try!

    This takes too long. I made this by cooling the cake inside the refrigerator. It was cooled completely after only two hours. Keep the cake COLD. Have the jello ready to pour through the holes. The cold cake with the room temperature jello mixture will have the jello set perfectly. Also, forget the coolwhip..Instead, either sprinkle with just powdered sugar, OR make a nice pourable glaze. Using coolwhip is not good because by the next day, the coolwhip is beginning to separate and it looks very unappetizing. IF you must use coolwhip, then do not put it on the cake at all. When cutting and serving, let each person decide if they want the coolwhip or not. Then just put a dollop on each individual piece of cake for those that WANT it. That way, your coolwhip will be consumed while still fresh as that's the way it SHOULD be done.
