Rated 5 out of 5 by from I make jello cakes all the time using yellow cake mix but instead of just cool whip for frosting,... I make jello cakes all the time using yellow cake mix but instead of just cool whip for frosting, make a small pack of instant pudding in your favorite flavor and add to 8 oz cool whip. use all Sugar free pudding, whip, and jello for a lower calorie/carb treat. These cakes are always a hit at summer gatherings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used to make this cake when my children were little. I used to make this cake when my children were little. But, I baked it in a Pyrex 13x9 dish, poked the holes with the round handle of a wooden spoon so there were large pockets of Jello, and served directly from the dish. The color showed through the glass in the areas where I had poked near the edges. And, it made it very easy to transport. I think it is time to make it once again but for the grandchildren now!

I also whipped together 3/4 cup confectioners sugar and 1 8 ounce package of cream cheese and 2 TB fresh whipping cream. Then folded in to whipped fresh whipping cream. Topped with blueberries and strawberries and piped rosettes to look like American Flag. It was a beauty and everyone loved the taste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made 2 8' round layers. I made 2 8' round layers. I put the first layer into the bottom of a clear trifle dish and made holes 2' apart around the outside with a wooden spoon handle. Next, I poured the red Jello over this layer and covered with Cool Whip. I repeated this process with the blue Jello. EVERYONE loved this! It looked and tasted great!

I made this cake for a block party on the fourth of July and I received great compliments on both it's taste and the way which I decorated it. I made a star on top with some fresh blueberries, then halved strawberries and alternated both them and blueberries around the base of the cake. I would definately make it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I loved this cake, it was cute, easy to make and everyone thought it was yummy! I loved this cake, it was cute, easy to make and everyone thought it was yummy! My only complaint was that, i didn't know that you had to even out the bottom cake and as soon as we cut into it the whole top part came sliding down. So next time I make it I will have to even it out and make it a flat surface.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake and called it a 'Spider Cake' for a halloween cake walk. I made this cake and called it a 'Spider Cake' for a halloween cake walk. I used a yellow cake, red jello and colored the whip cream black. I asembled the cake as directed, and gave it black licorice legs and large purple gumdrop eyes. It was the favorite cake prize of the game. (You know kids!)
