How to make JellO Cake – Recipe
Here is a blast from the past. TODAY is my daughters 8th birthday, yesterday she helped me make her JELLO CAKE for her birthday a tradition we started 3 years ago. Oh how time flies and I can not believe my sweet baby girl is already 8. This year she decided to change it up a bit and do one red cake and one green. Since her birthday is on St Patrick’s day everyone who eats the red one gets a good ole PINCH from the birthday girl. She thought this was a hilarious idea.
If you missed the recipe we posted 4 years ago, here you go…. a blast from the past.
Yesterday was Mckeelys birthday and she wanted me to make her a green Jello cake. My sister in law made Jello Cake for the first time a few years ago, and it has now become one of my kids favorites. Start off by baking a normal cake, we normally use a white cake. Bake it and let it cool. Then once it has cooled, take a wooden spoon and with the handle poke holes in the cake. The kids love this part!
You then need to make Jello. I use 2 small boxes, which would normally make 4 cups of Jello….but I leave one cup of water out. So it only makes 3 cups of Jello ( makes it a little more firm) You need to pour the 3 cups of liquid Jello over the top of the cake…. Pouring it into the holes.
You then need to cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
Once you are ready to eat, top with coolwhip…..Keep left over cake in refrigerator. Maleeya was happy to lick the bowl clean!
My family thinks it is a fun way to eat cake…..hopes yours will too! Makes for a nice cool summer time treat!
