This is a fun cake to make and it’s really moist and flavorful.  This recipe came from the Jello website.  You can use any flavor/color of jello, I used green for St. Patricks’s Day.  You can also use sugar-free jello to keep the calories down.

You do need to plan a little bit of head time since it needs to be refrigerated for at least 3 hours (I leave it in the refrigerator over- night).  I used a 13×9 cake pan but you could use two 9-inch round pans too.

What you’ll need:

1 pkg. white cake mix

1 cup  boiling water

1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Lime Flavor Jello

1/2 cup  cold water

1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed

To Make

PREPARE cake batter and bake as directed on package for 13×9-inch pan. Cool cake in pan 15 min. Pierce cake with large fork or round end of a wooden spoon  at 1/2-inch intervals.

ADD boiling water to jello mix in small bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water; pour over cake. Refrigerate 3 hours.
