Every time I have a slice of jello cake, I think of my wonderful grandma Julie. She made it for me every single time we came to her house. It makes me smile just to think about it. In my mind’s eye, I can still see that wonderful woman coming to the table with it, reminding me how much she thought of me to always make me my special cake.
Of course you can vary this recipe by making your own white cake from scratch. You can also make homemade cool whip. But, this simple recipe was how Grandma whipped it up.
For my son’s second birthday party, I decided to make jello cake. It brings the idea that her spirit is still with us. It is a tribute of sorts.
- I am sure that when you make this cake, my grandma will be smiling up in heaven.
