1 - 3oz. box strawberry Jell-O
1 box Duncan Hines fudge marble cake mix OR Duncan Hines white or yellow cake mix--your choice
3/4 cup boiling water
1/2 cup cold water
Topping: 1 envelope Dream Whip; 1 - 3oz. box Jell-O vanilla INSTANT pudding; 1 1/2 cups cold milk; 1 tsp. vanilla
In a bowl add strawberry Jell-O and boiling water--stir until dissolved. Add the cold water to the Jell-O--stir to mix, then cool to room temperature. Prepare and bake fudge marble cake mix according to box directions in a 9 x 13 greased cake pan--cool cake for 20 minutes. Use a toothpick or a meat fork to poke holes 1" apart all over the cake all the way to the bottom. Carefully pour the cooled Jell-O mixture all over the top of the cake so it will soak down into the holes. Put the cake in the refrigerator. Take the bowl off of your mixer and refrigerate the bowl until it's cold. Place the cold bowl on your mixer--add the Dream Whip powder, vanilla Jell-O powder and the cold milk--beat until mixed, then beat on high speed until stiff (3-8 minutes). Remove cake from refrigerator--frost the cake with the Dream Whip mixture. Refrigerate the cake overnight before cutting.
