Last night Miss Add graduated from preschool and mama needed a quick and easy cake for our little family celebration.
Anyone that knows Miss Add, you know she is a big fan of chocolate, rainbows and icing… So I gave her the choice of rainbow cupcakes, chocolate cake or a jello cake with cream cheese icing…
She chose the jello cake and it was a big hit… as in there wasn’t a single piece left kind of hit… my favorite kind!
I started with my favorite white cake mix and whipped it up according to the box.
Ideally I would have made it in my 9×13 pan, but my main pan was in use and my back up pan had a bad spot in it and I had to throw it out… so I used a Bundt pan.
Now, I didn’t really think through the jello cake process in using a Bundt… so bare with me… it turns out delicious regardless 😉
Anyhoo… Once you are all baked up, use a skewer or a for to poke holes in the cake once it cools.
Now take a small box of orange jello and dissolve it in 1 Cup of Hot Water.
Now add 1/2 cup cold water (NOT 1 Cup like the box calls for).
And pour over top of cake
Pour it all… don’t be afraid…
The cake will soak it up…
Now take a brick of softened cream cheese and mix it with 1 1/3 Cups Powdered Sugar. If your icing is not thin enough, you can adjust the recipe by adding 1 T water.
Put the icing on your cake and pop in the fridge for at least 2 hours…
or 1 Preschool Graduation 😉
Not a single slice left…
