    LOVE this cake. Can make it so many flavors. Our all time favorite is the lime, but I have done, grape, peach (really good), strawberry-banana, cherry...they are all so good. I tint the cool whip to match the jello flavor. I usually double the recipe. I agree with leaving out the cold water for the jello (better flavor to jello).
