Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for a party and everyone loved it! I made this for a party and everyone loved it! I put the cool whip mixture in my pampered chef cake decorator and they looked adorable. I also used a sugar free cake mix, sugar free jello and lite cool whip. No one knew the difference!
