Have you ever made one of these? If not, you should! What fun! The hubby requested one for his birthday this year (yep – squeezed that one in before the little one’s birthday party) and it turned out beautifully.
It was a total copy/paste from the Kraft website – but what a great idea for a cake! Bake the cake, poke a bunch of holes in it, fill it full of Jello, let set and serve – what could be easier?
2 baked 9-inch round white cake layers, cooled
1 package JELL-O Cherry Flavor Gelatin
Place cakes, top sides up, in clean 9-inch round pans. Pierce with a large fork at 1/2-inch intervals.
Make JELL-O according to package directions.
Pour over cakes, refrigerate for 3 hours.
Dip bottoms of pans in warm water for 10 seconds; remove cakes from pans. Stack on a plate, fill the middle with frosting and frost the outside of the cake.
Garnish with Maraschino Cherries
