Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 350ºF.
  • Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 2 (9-inch) round layers, blending dry gelatin mix into batter before pouring into prepared pans. Cool cakes completely in pans.
  • Pierce cakes with large fork at 1/4-inch intervals. Blend next 3 ingredients in blender until well blended; slowly pour over cakes.
  • Refrigerate 1 hour or until liquid is absorbed. (Liquid will be absorbed slowly by the cakes.)
  • Mix 1/2 cup COOL WHIP and lemon juice in medium bowl with whisk until blended; stir in remaining COOL WHIP. Stack cake layers on plate, filling and frosting with COOL WHIP mixture.

Size Wise

Sweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.

Special Extra

Ensure easy removal of cake layers by covering bottoms of cake pans with circles of parchment paper before filling with batter.

How to Serve Cake

Assemble cake on a cake stand or platter that has a rim as some of the cake's milk mixture will run out of the cake as it stands.


To add milk mixture to cake with less mess, pour milk mixture into clean plastic bottle with narrow squirt tip. Insert tip of bottle into hole in cake before gently squeezing milk mixture into hole. Continue across both cakes.

How to Store

Keep frosted cake refrigerated.
