Instructions

  1. Prepare and bake cake in a 9×13 pan according to package directions or recipe.
  2. Let cake cool 15 minutes. Using a chopstick or similar tool, poke holes all over the cake (I did 15 rows of 12).
  3. Mix red Jell-O with 3/4 cup boiling water until dissolved. Add 1/2 cup cold water. Pour red Jell-O into every other row of holes.
  4. Repeat with blue Jell-O. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
  5. If using, whip heavy cream & powdered sugar on medium until stiff peaks form. Spread over cake. Keep refrigerated until serving.
