This recipe is good just like it is. I have made this twice. First time with the orange gelatin second time with cherry. Both excellent. I also used vanilla ice cream to top it off. YUMMY! So quick and easy thanks! Read More

This is a VERY sweet cake because of the addition of the gelatin. You might try using only 1/2 of the gelatin package. Overall I think this could be a good cake for a child's birthday party with some tweaking to the recipe here and there. Read More
