My  mom made this easy Jello Cake recipe for us when I lived at home and what a delicious dessert it is! If I had to pick a cake that reflected spring to me I can’t think of one better than this, Jello Cake. I am using my affiliate links.

How to make easy Jello Cake

You can actually get creative  by pairing your favorite flavor cake with your favorite flavor of Jello. I like a white or yellow cake with cherry flavored gelatin. Making this easy Jello cake is as simple as…

  • 1 regular sized container of Cool Whip or generic brand whipped topping

How to make Jello Cake, an delicious easy dessert. #jellocakeI love my mixing bowls, I have two different sizes.

  • When done baking, allow to cool for while.
  • I always leave my cake in the pan. Poke holes all over using fork or end of wooden spoon.

  • Now- prepare Jello by only using the step that calls for hot water and mix to dissolve. Do NOT add the cold water (because  you don’t want to water-down that great flavor). Note: Two of the small boxes did give me more Jello than I needed but I don’t think one small box is enough.
  • Pour all over your cake, put in the fridge to chill for a little while.
  • After its chilled for a little while frost it with your tub of cool whip.
  • Put back into fridge to chill thoroughly.
