I was really disappointed after reading all the great reviews...but the cake turned out very soggy. I don't know what went wrong, but I followed the directions.



This is very similar to my recipe, except I use one small box of Jello with a coordinating 12 ounce soda pop. ONLY. no water. I always make it for bbq's! EVERYONE loves this refrigerated cake on a hot day. Even had a 'chef in training' compliment this cake!



I have made this for years! ORANGE is fantastic, try this substitute. (To clarify a prior question substitute the cold water in the jello mix with cold pop. I always use a can of sunkist, mix 1/2 in with the jello and just pour the other half over the top as well. I make it in a regular cake pan, one layer, with no whole fruit. It keeps a little better and is a huge hit. Tastes like a wonderfully yummy cream sickle. YUM... Regular cake pan makes it a bit easier to make, very quick and clean...easy to store in the fridge as well. :)
