Jello Cake

Jello Cake- Yes really Jello and Cake. I had my doubts about this recipe. My friend Kristen LOVES it and I decided to try to make it for her for her birthday.

1 yellow cake mix (3 eggs, 3/4 cup vegetable oil for my mix)

1 package strawberry jello (1 cup boiling water, 1 cup cold water for my mix)

1 container whip topping like Cool Whip
Bake cake according to directions. (I did 2 9in rounds)

Mix Jell-o according to package (minus the chilling).

Make several holes in top of cake and then pour Jell-o mix over cake.

Chill cakes (I did it over night)

Frost with Cool Whip.

WOW is this yummy and super easy!

TIPS- make this in a pan that can easily turn a cake out, I had trouble popping mine out (nothing more cool whip couldn't cover).

Next time I think I'll add berries to add extra crunch.

The cross section is great, the jello makes a beautiful marble effect.

And here is the Birthday Girl!
