  • Heat oven to 350ºF.
  • Spray 2 (9-inch) round pans with cooking spray; cover bottoms with parchment. Prepare cake batter from 1 pkg. cake mix as directed on package. Pour half the batter into each of 2 medium bowls. Add dry cherry drink mix to batter in one bowl; mix well. Stir dry orange drink mix into remaining batter. Pour into prepared pans.
  • Bake 28 to 30 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool cakes in pans 15 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely. Cut cakes in half horizontally to form 2 layers of each color cake.
  • Repeat with remaining cake mix and dry drink mixes, washing pans between uses.
  • Mix sour cream and sugar in large bowl until blended; gently stir in COOL WHIP. Stack one layer of each color cake on 2 plates, spreading 1/3 cup COOL WHIP mixture onto each cake before covering with next layer. Frost top and side of cakes with remaining COOL WHIP mixture. Refrigerate 2 hours.

Special Equipment Needed


Prepare using your favorite colors/flavors of KOOL-AID Unsweetened Drink Mix.


If you have 4 (9-inch) round pans, prepare and bake all the cakes at the same time.

Make Ahead

Prepare cakes as directed; cool completely. Tightly wrap each layer in plastic wrap; freeze up to 2 weeks. When ready to serve, thaw cakes at room temperature before preparing COOL WHIP mixture and using to fill and frost cakes.

Special Extra

Not a fan of tart fruit flavors? Stir 2 Tbsp. sugar into batters with each drink mix.
