- White or yellow cake mix
- One big box or two little boxes of flavored gelatin (Jello)
- Creamy whipped topping of any flavor
- Candy sprinkles (optional)
Prepare an ordinary white or yellow cake mix according to box directions. Use a sheet cake (9 x 13) baking pan.
After cake cools for 15 minutes, poke holes with a fork (meat fork works well) or a pair of chopsticks. Holes should not go all the way through cake to the bottom of the pan. The entire cake should be perforated this way with holes every 1/2 – 3/4 inch (1-2 centimeters).
Prepare a large box of flavored gelatin. Do not chill.
Pour cooled gelatin liquid evenly over entire cake. Holes in the cake allow gelatin to seep into the cake.
Place the cake in the refrigerator until gelatin firms, about 3-4 hours.
