Growing up my Mom used to make me Jello cake for my birthday…it was a 2 layer cake with each layer a different flavour, usually grape and lime. I LOVED them so much. And since I’ve had my own family, Jello cakes have become the most requested birthday cakes around here as well. You just can’t beat a moist vanilla cake with Jello and whipped cream in every bite. SO good.
As I mentioned, I usually make Jello cakes as 2 layer cakes, but they’re also really great made as sheet cakes. In fact, I think they’re much easier to make and serve this way. They’re especially great for serving a crowd.
This is the easiest cake ever!
What I love most about Jello cakes, aside from the fact that they’re SO delicious, is how easy they are to make. I use a box cake mix, 1 box of Jello, whipped cream and fruit. Easiest dessert ever. Sometimes life just calls for a box mix…but honestly, box cake mixes are delicious. First you bake a white cake, poke holes in it, then pour Jello all over it. Refrigerate it for at least 3-4 hours then top it with whipped cream. Simple right?
Then I added fresh strawberries to go with the strawberry Jello.
Delicious. And it’s such a pretty cake too!
Pick your favourite flavour!
One of the nice things about making a Jello cake is that you can use ANY flavour of Jello that you would like…the possibilities are endless! This red and white strawberry version would be perfect for a Canada Day party! It’s light, fresh and delicious…a perfect summer dessert.Print
