Quick and easy to make from things usually on hand - all you need are a box of cake mix, 2 small boxes of Jell-O and some Cool Whip. What could be easier?
We generally use a red fruit flavor and lemon-lime for the flavor choices but any of the Jell-O flavors will do nicely. The colors are festive and will go with most any occasion.
Keep cake cold before, during and after frosting. If the whipped topping gets warm, the layers will slide apart. Several large toothpicks or bamboo skewers can help hold the layers together until time for serving.
