How to Make Summer Jell-o Cake


  • 1You will need the following}
    9 x 13 in. cake pan
    foil - measuring cup
    mixer - wooden spoon
    straw - paring knife
  • 2I use which ever cake mixes are on sale. Make up cake as directed on box. Bake.
  • 3Just before time to take out the cake, in a small bowl(larger than a cereal bowl, mix up jell-o adding the hot water only. Stir to mix.
  • 4When cake comes out, let cool slightly, then with straw poke holes all over the cake, but not close together.
  • 5pour jell-o liquid over top of cake.
    Cover with foil tightly.
  • 6Then place cake in refrigerater for 1 hour.
  • 7While waiting, with knife cut out the green stems from the fresh strawberries. Rince and let drain.
    Then cut the strawberries in hafes.
    Set out cool whip to start to thaw.
  • 8When cake comes out of the frig., Add glaze to the top of the cake. Then add the cool whip and spread on with wooden spoon just as you would a frosting.
    Last add the fresh strawberries to the top and your dessert cake is ready~
  • 9We have made this with other flavors of jello, so try some new onces. Be creative. Oh yeah, when we are making the strawberry, we sometimes find the strawberry cool whip, this adds a tasty flare and looks pretty, too! For the 4th July, decorate as a flag, strawberries as the red stripes and blueberries for the square of stars.
