I have been making this cake since I was a kid and I still love it. It's a great cake for the holidays. I also like to use different colors and flavors for other holidays, etc.
I make this every Christmas holiday. I can see where it could be easy to mess this up. - use a Duncan Hinds "white" cake mix. - agreed: only use Cool Whip "Lite" I've made this in one afternoon easily. - Measure out the batter so you have even layers (I use a large hand scoop, but a 1/4 measure cup will do too). - cool the cake in the pan 10 minutes, then cool 2 hours on a wire rack NOT IN THE PAN. After cooling, place back in the original pans tho before proceeding. - I prepare the Jell-o mixtures as directed. It seems like a lot, but here's the trick: Use a dinner fork with long tines and systematically poke your holes about 1" apart, going in circles, in rows eventually ending up in the center. If you randomly do it, it will not be pretty and can end up messy (too much in one spot). - next, pour each mixture VERY slowly, as in a slow stream (use a good pouring measure cup for this so it won't dribble). Start in the center and slowly move in circles toward the outside. You can stop a
Thanks to all who wrote the reviews, I avoid making the same mistakes you all had. I would like to share with you what I did. I attached the picture of my cake too.
(1) I made the cakes first, let them cool down (overnight).
(2) I used Cake Leveler to cut off the top of one cake, this is going to be used as the bottom cake. So when I put the top layer, the cake will not slip off.
(3) I used CHOPSTICK to pork hole.
(4) I used less than a cup of Jello (only around 3/4 cup), the cake was not soggy.
(5) I put the cakes back in the fridge overnight.
(6) I added 3-4 oz of cream cheese into the cool whip before using as frosting.
(7) I used “candied cherries” instead of “fresh raspberries”. It is cheaper and great for anytime of the year.
If you are in the hurry, don’t make this cake.
