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 ...

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!...

This cake is incredibly moist and delicious and is a great alternative to chocolate cake for parties!

I used a bundt pan and sugar free Black cherry Jello and it was good.
