Ingredients

  • 1 cup very hot water
  • 1 box (4-serving size) Jell-O™ raspberry-flavored gelatin
  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ white cake mix
  • 1/2 cup frozen (thawed) lemonade concentrate
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 container Betty Crocker™ Whipped vanilla frosting
  • 1 cup Cool Whip frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries, if desired
  • Lemon peel strips, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with baking spray with flour. In small bowl, mix hot water and gelatin until gelatin is completely dissolved; cool slightly.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cake mix, 1/4 cup of the gelatin mixture, 1/4 cup of the lemonade concentrate, the water, oil and egg whites with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes. Pour into pan. Reserve remaining gelatin mixture and lemonade concentrate.
  • 3
    Bake 25 to 31 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Poke warm cake every inch with fork tines. Remove 1 tablespoon of the reserved gelatin mixture to microwavable custard cup or small bowl. In another small bowl, mix remaining gelatin mixture and remaining 1/4 cup lemonade concentrate; pour slowly over cake. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

    In medium bowl, fold together frosting and whipped topping; frost cake. Microwave 1 tablespoon gelatin mixture uncovered on High 10 seconds to liquefy. Using 1/4 teaspoon measuring spoon, place small drops of gelatin mixture over frosting; with spoon or toothpick, swirl gelatin into frosting. Garnish each piece with raspberries and lemon peel strips. Store covered in refrigerator.

  • For a shower dessert, garnish each piece with a small paper beverage umbrella.
  • If you plan to tote this cake, be sure to use an insulated cooler to keep it cold.
