Insert bite-size fish-shaped and octopus-shaped chewy fruit snacks into gelatin "pool" before refrigerating.
For a quick-set gelatin, add 4 cups ice cubes to dissolved gelatin instead of the 1 cup cold water; stir 8 min. or until gelatin begins to thicken. Remove any unmelted ice. Pour thickened gelatin into center of cake; continue as directed.
Make it Easy
For easy removal of cake, line pan with foil before filling with batter.
