Crossfit Des Moines Party - Jello Cake

So this isn't exactly a "clean" cake recipe, but it is a very yummy, low-cal one.
This is my "go-to" cake in the summer as people find it very light and refreshing on a hot summer day.
Strawberry-Lime Jello Cake
1 yellow or white cake mix and whatever it calls for on the back of the box...usually eggs, oil (use canola), and water
1 container of light whipped cream (you may need the extra big container if using two round cake pans)
2 jello packets (can be different flavors)
Prepare and bake cake as directed using two round pans or 1 - 9x13.
Let cake cool. Pierce the cake with a fork. Make sure to cover all inches.
Prepare jello using 1 1/2 cups water. Pour jello over cake. You will think you have too much liquid but you don't!
my favorite flavors are lime and strawberry

If you use two round pans you can pick a flavor for each layer.
Top with whipped cream and dish up!
It'll be a hit!
Until next time...
look good, do good, feel good
