This is a very easy jello cake I grew up loving. My family loves it now too! The jello and cool whip do magic things to a plain white cake mix. It's so yummy and springy tasting. I also love making it for a BBQ. Everyone always gobbles it down fast because it's cool and refreshing. Today Sophie went for her Kindergarten screening, so we had to make something special. If you have never made this cake before you must. You will not be disappointed. I usually use red jello, but any flavor will work. Enjoy :)

I'm a previous stay-at-home mom of 8 years who joined the working world again as the Food Service Director over our local school district and a high school lunch lady. I have 3 kiddies. Makayla (Miss Picky Pants) is 14, Sophie (Worm) is 13 and Chase's 9. I LOVE to cook! If you're looking for plain ol' mom food... you're in the right place! I'm always looking to cook up new recipes and simple, inexpensive meals. My goal's to share old favorites and to make new ones. Thanks to everyone who stops by and visits my blog! You inspire me to keep posting (even when I have a difficult time managing my time!)
