Poke holes in cake, about 1-2" apart, so about 12 holes. And poor jello mixture into holes and on top of cake.

Let sit in the fridge for 1-2 hours to cool. "Frost" with cool whip. Enjoy.


ETA: I use my mom for recipes.
This is one of our favorites but we use whipped frosting instead of cool whip.


I made Choc cake this weekend- I use the recipe on the back of the Hershey's Coco powder. Its really good an rich.

I am thinking I am going to make some Amish Friendship Bread this week too.

I also love allrecipes.com, But I also do a lot of google searches and come up with random sites for recipes. MIL has a subscription to taste of home and those little monthly cookbook things that they have cash registers so I get those when she is done with them.

Re: What's baking this week?

Ahenson, I love your avi pic.

Cassie, thank you for the recipe. I will have to try this next week if we aren't caked out over here.

Ma, what kind of cake are you going to do for baby boy's first? Exciting!

Andee, I am going to check out those blogs.

The end of the year is always a bit caked out. There's a birthday every month in this house and thanksgiving, and Christmas, and now a December baby too... I will be baking a lot!

Re: What's baking this week?

Here's a suggestion...make cookie dough, shape into balls and then store balls in ziploc baggies in quantities of your choice labeled w/type of cookie, oven temp, cook time, and "greased" or "ungreased". I store a couple dozen in each bag and make a dozen at a time...great for when I want something sweet and homemade, but just don't have time to bake something. I've done it w/sugar cookies, chocolate cookies, choc chip, peanut butter, and oatmeal cranberry. No need to thaw dough balls! My girlfriend and I put together larger batches of dough so we can keep some for ourselves and then trade with each other so we have even more variety.

I do this all the time. then when I take dinner out, I pop a pan of cookies in and when we're done with dinner, we have fresh homemade cookies for dessert. YUM!

Today I'm making whole wheat sandwich bread again, and tomorrow I'm making individual chocolate molten cakes.

I've never heard of pear muffins! Would I just substitute pears for blueberries in my blueberry muffin recipe, or do you have something special w/cinnamon or whole wheat? They sound yummy!

Also sounding yummy: zandj's banana oat muffins and assorted fruit crumbles!
