My Grandmother took this recipe to all the family functions. She only gives it out to her Grandkids when they get married. Can be made with different flavors of gelatin and pudding.

Absolutely wonderful! I tried the combination of lime gelatin and lemon pudding and it was good so I decided to also try cherry gelatin w/ cheesecake pudding and it was great too! Such a versatile recipe and fun to make with my five year old. Read More

I feel bad to give this lower rating but I didn't personally like this cake. I didn't change anything about the recipe and I found it to be a little bland. I may try it again by using some of the suggestions of changes people have posted. Read More

A fan-favorite. Experiment greatly with the jell-o and pudding and don't be afraid to put more jell-o in the cake. Read More

I'm sorry but I did follow this recipe exactly and it was not too good. It tasted more like a pre-packaged cake than a homemade recipe from grandma to me though others seem to have enjoyed it. Read More

This recipe is even better if you use a lemon cake mix instead of a white cake mix Read More
