Friday, I decided to share a Friday Food Blog. Here's a recipe that's a
favorite in my family. This easy-to-make colorful cake is a perfect spring
Pastel Layer Cake
1 package (2 layer size) yellow cake mix
1 package (4 serving size) Jell-o Lime Flavor Gelatin
1 package (4 serving size) Jell-o Lemon Flavor Gelatin
2 tubs (8 oz. each) Cool Whip whipped topping, thawed
Prepare cake mix according to directions on the box.
Divide batter into 2 bowls. Add lime gelatin to one bowl, lemon to the other. Stir thoroughly. Pour each into separate greased 9 inch round cake pan. (You’ll have 1 lemon and 1 lime.)
Bake 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees. (Oven times vary, so check cake.)
Cool 15 minutes and remove cakes from pans. Let cakes completely cool on a wire rack.
Place one cake (lime or lemon, your choice) on a serving plate and spread with ½ tub of whipped topping. Top with other cake layer. Frost cake with remaining whipped topping. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
This simple recipe can be modified in a variety of ways. You can change the Jell-o flavors to create your own combinations: orange-pineapple, cherry-black cherry, blue raspberry-raspberry, etc. Or make a cake with one flavor (all orange or all lime).
If you want a more natural option, substitute homemade whipped cream for the Cool Whip.
