JELLO CAKE is one of my all time favorite cakes. This past weekend was my birthday and when my daughters asked me what kind of cake I wanted, this was my first choice. It's so simple a blockhead can make it. You just can't mess it up! And MOIST, oh my soul, is it ever moist! The nice thing is, you can dress it up with fresh berries and whipped cream and make it even better!


1 white cake mix, prepared according to directions
1 large box strawberry jello
1 quart fresh strawberries
1 (12 oz) Cool Whip

Prepare white cake mix according to pkg instructions. Bake in a 9 x 13 pan. Remove from oven and poke holes all over the cake with a meat fork. In separate mixing bowl, prepare strawberry jello using ONLY the hot water, not the cold. Stir until jello is dissolved. Pour over the cake, making sure it gets drizzled evenly over the holes. Refrigerate until jello is set. Top with Cool whip and fresh strawberries. Garnish with fresh mint.

I love this cake too! Love it when I use Jell-o pudding instead of the Jell-o! It goes quick at the pot lucks!

Yep, I like the pudding version too Julie. Especially the double chocolate!
