Made this for my daughter's birthday. It got rave reviews. The chewy pieces in the water were a surprise for the guests. The water stayed put even after all the surrounding cake was eaten. Some guests don't like cake and liked the water part. I am thinking of modifying it to make a golf course for my son's birthday.
The Jello was too difficult, pouring it in made for a big blue mess and soaked the cake. <<< Response from Kraft Kitchens Expert, Wendy ~ To prevent the cake from getting soaked by the JELL-O, the JELL-O should have started to thicken but not be fully set (about the consistency of raw eggs whites) when it is poured into the cake shell. >>>
This looks a lot better than it tastes. It was still fun to decorate though!
I made this for a forth of July party last year and people were very impressed, it's very fun cake obviously. But I would reccomend making two boxes of cake seperatley and then layering one on top of the other. Otherwise the cake is too thin. Using two layers also makes the jello stay better. Just connect the two using the cream.
My daughter came home yesterday and said "Mom the teacher asked me if you are making the pool cake for the last day of school and I told her yes hope you don't mind"..........I have been making this recipe for the last 3 yrs, (pool parties, last day of school party) and it has always been a hit. My daughter loves helping me be creative with decorating, no 2 cakes look the same.
My daughter saw this cake on your website and proclaimed it was the one for her 7th birthday party. I was so thrilled how easy but cute it was. It launched a whole "beach" theme for her party. I actually made 2 cakes. A smaller one in a 7" mini springform pan for her friend party, and then a 9 x 13" for her relatives. It was easy and she even got to do most of the decorating. (Sticks of gum cut in half made cute beach towels for the mini teddy grahams.)
Made this for MiKayla's birthday and she loved it and so did everyone else. Very easy made with great results.....
This is a great recipie! I actually used it and twisted it a bit for my Boss, who is a HUGE golfer, I made a pond, then used brown sugar for a sand trap, and dyed some coconut green. I trimmed the cake with golf Tees instead of candles (Figured it wold be cheaper LOL) It turned out AWESOME!
This was so easy to make for my daughters birthday. Everyone thought it was so cute and it tasted great!
I made this for my daughter's birthday. I added some gummy fish to the jello but the red gummy's discolored the jello, other then that the cake tasted wonderful and I had many compliments on it!!!!
