I made this cake last year and it was ok. I expected it to come out fluffier.
I enjoyed every step of this recipe... from making it to eating it !! It made a LOVELY presentation. However, I didn't have any problem with the layers, the cake stayed together beautifully.
I LOVE poke cakes! I topped the cake with mandarin oranges and used orange jello like another reviewer suggested. the only problem with this cake is that the frosting (which is SO delicious) makes the layers kind of slippery. Maybe adding something else in between the layers along with the frosting would keep them together. Watch the video along with this recipe. Mine turned out exactly like the picture! I'm eager to experiment with other cake and jello flavors!
I made this for a backyard picnic w/ our neighbors and everyone liked it. If I make it again I will do it as a 13x9 instead; my layers slide apart from the topping in the middle. I also did not use all of the frosting on my cake.
it was ok- used the wrong kind of pudding mix- PLEASE READ THE PACKAGE (i bought the cook & serve mix) therefore my frosting wasn't as thick as it looks on the picture, but other than that i didn't use all of the jello mix- too lemony but light & tangy- cool for the summer!
I did not add candied lemons on top, but this cake was very light and refreshing. As with other cakes on here that you pour jello over top, I did not use all of the jello mixture. About 3/4 of what the recipe calls for. Also, I wouldn't use the whole packet of lemon pudding in the icing again. With the lemon jello in there too, it's way to lemon'y for my taste. I'd add more cool whip or maybe some powdered sugar
Made this according to the directions (but using sugar free Jello and pudding) the first time. Then, made it with Chocolate cake with Rasberry Jello & Chocolate pudding mixed with the Cool Whip. Again, I used the sugar free versions (didn't tell anyone until after). I didn't even get a chance to taste a piece of the Chocolate version; but did get lots of requests for the recipe. My 5-year old son loves helping in the kitchen... this recipe gave him lots of opportunities. Thanks!
My husband said, "you change my view of cake!" Normally not a cake liker, he ate two pieces. It is light and refreshing. I dissolved the jello in one cup of boiling water and added a cup of very cold water. Then I only refrigerated the cake for 2 hours. Everyone who tried this cake loved it!
I made this cake and took it to a party and everyone loved it.
I used Jello sugar-free lemon jello and Jello sugar-free lemon pudding and light Cool Whip topping. It was great!!! Will make again and again.
