    i fount this recipe here some question is do i let the cake cool befor adding the jello mix or do i add it when the cake is still hot???

    Here is the summer cake we love.It's light and sweet, but not rich and heavy.

    Jello Cake1 box of white cake mix1 box of jello (lime, cherry, or orange)1 bowl of cool-whipPreheat oven to 350*. Mix cake according to box. Mix jello according to box. (Do not add to cake yet, just have it prepared)

    Bake cake. When baked, pull from oven and with a toothpick poke holes all over cake. Pour Jello mixture slowly over it time to absorb. Ice with cool whip...put in frig till ready to serve (about 1 hour) Serve chilled. ( I serve this in the oblong cake pan I cook it in.)

    You have your warm/hot jello ready when the cake comes out if the oven.
    Poke it right away, and pout the jello over it.
    Let it cool, then add the cream on top.

    I have used a fork.
    Have not made this in years though, as we do not consume any processed foods.
    I might need to make my own jello, and a honey cake, topping it with raw cream, and see what happens.

    Be careful pouring jello on a hot cake. You can end up tearing up the cake, ending up with mush. I used to also use the handle of a wooden spoon, or clean pencil etc. Then I froze the cake. Slowly poured the Room Temp jello over the frozen cake, letting it soak in slowly. Then topped with the cream or topping. If you want more than one color freeze and poke new holes between colors. Don't use too much jello also.

    Imp- Jello with mushy cake in it still tastes good. [​IMG]
