1 9x13-inch cake


  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package white cake mix (such as Pillsbury® Classic White)

  • 1 cup water

  • 3 eggs

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • 4 cups fresh blueberries

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry-flavored gelatin

  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
