Pop Jello Cake Recipe


1 box white cake mix
1 large box of jello to match pop
1 liter and 1/2 of any pop (red, orange, grape- even mountain dew, it goes with lime jello.)
1 large box of vanilla instant pudding
3 (8 oz.) containers or whatever you want to get to make 24 oz. of Cool whip (left out to soften)

Make cake as directed by the box. Then let cool completely.
While this is cooling mix the pop and jello in a big bowl. (DO NOT add water to the jello.) It will foam a bit. Mix completely to dissolve the jello as the pop will be usually cold and hard to dissolve. So I sprinkle the jello into the pop slowly and mix as I go.
After it has cooled use a fork and poke holes into the cake all over it. This will be the drain holes for the liquid mixture to go through.
I use a ladle and pour the mixture over the cake until it is saturated. I do this slowly so I can see that the cake is soaking it up. This would work great if you have a clear glass cake pan and can see the bottom to see if the mixture is getting to the bottom yet.
NOW after all the jello mixture is on the cake put it in the fridge for about 2 hrs. to let it set up.
While this is getting close to the 2 hr. mark use a BIG bowl and your mixer to mix the cool whip and instant vanilla pudding together. (DO NOT add milk to the pudding mix.) Then take the cake out of the fridge and put the topping on and serve or put back in the fridge until ready to serve.
**This will hold up well out of the fridge for quite a bit. So don't worry if you need to take it to a gathering and it being out of the fridge.
You will get many compliments on this so be forewarned.
