4th of July Jello Cake

Have you ever had Jello Cake? It is one of those delicious, easy, and inexpensive desserts...not to mention how FESTIVE it is.

I made one for our early 4th of July BBQ. And it was delightful!

To make your own 4th of July Jello cake,

1. Make a yellow or white cake as directed on the box.

2. Let it cool for at least 15 minutes. Then poke holes with a fork through the entire cake. It will look like this

3. Just before it has cooled, mix up 3 oz. jello as directed on the box. (I wanted 2 colors so I used 1.5 oz of each color).

4. Pour the unset jello over the cake slowly so that it is absorbed and doesn't rush to the bottom of the pan.

5. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, but the longer the better. Keep refrigerated until you serve it.

6. Before serving, spread cool whip on top and garnish with fruit or sprinkles.
