Lime Koolaid Cake with Whipped Jello Frosting

***Featured on Cut Out and Keep**** ***************************************** This is a novelty cake from a store bought mix to serve after a spicy meal and it is a little tart and not too sweet and fun for kids to make as it uses two all time kid favorites - Koolaid and Jello! Cake:
  • 1 box of store bought cake (white or yellow) and whatever ingredients the mix calls for (mine called for 3 eggs, 1/3 cup oil and 1/1/4 cup of milk)
  • 1 pkg Lemon-Lime Koolaid
  • Green food coloring (optional)
  • Non-cooking food spray (spray the pan you are going to bake the cake in)
Mix the cake according to the directions on the package, then add one packet of Koolade and stir in. Add 5-10 drops of green food coloring if you want it to be a little more green. Mix in food coloring and pour into cake pan(s) and bake according to the directions on the package. Allow cake to cook before frosting. Frosting:
  • 1 8 oz. tub of Cool Whip or other whipped topping
  • 1 small pkg. Lime Jello
  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 2 TBSP milk
  • Add the whipped topping, jello and powdered sugar and mix together.

Slowly add the 2 TBSP of milk. Frost the cake and store in the refridgerator for at least 30 mins before serving to allow the frosting to set up.
