I realize that the 4th of July was almost 2 weeks ago, but I wanted to share the recipe I used to make an awesome Two Layer Jello Cake. This cake can be made with all different colors for any occasion.
It looked like a regular cake from the outside.
But this is what it looked like when it was sliced!
(The photos were taken with my iPhone because my big camera battery died so they’re not the greatest, but you get the point)
Isn’t it pretty?!
And it was so simple. Here’s how to make it.
1 boxed white cake mix
1 small package strawberry jello
1 small package berry jello
1 large tub of Cool Whip or you could make your own whipped cream
Bake the white cake according to directions on box. Once it has cooled completely leave the cakes in the pans and poke holes into the cakes using a wooden skewer or fork. A skewer works better.
Then mix your jello (but don’t follow package directions this time). Bring 1 cup of water to a boil (about 2 minutes in the microwave) and mix it with the strawberry jello. Pour it over one of the cakes very slowly letting it seep into the holes. Then do the same with the berry jello. Cover both cakes and put them in the fridge overnight.
Remove cakes from the pans and place them one on top of the other on cake stand with a layer of Cool Whip in the middle. Then frost the entire cake with the Coop Whip. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Jello cakes are great for summer when you’re looking for a lighter dessert to serve on those hot days!
