Baking the cake
It is an easy to make recipe. The process is mentioned below:
- White cake mix, one box (18 ounces)
- Water, 1 cup
- Eggs, 3
- Oil, 1/3 cup
- Grape jello, one box (3 ounces)
- Thawed, frozen whipped topping
- For decoration, kiwis or sliced strawberries
Cakes batter is to be prepared in huge mixing bowl. It is necessary to properly mix eggs, water and oil with mixture and the batter poured in glass baking dish. Once the cake is baked, it is to be removed from oven, allowed to cool thoroughly. Holes are to be poked onto the cake top using toothpick. The baking dish bottom is to be hit. The holes allow the jello to move down the cakes easily.
Grape jello is to be prepared according to given instructions, and should not be allowed to set at any point of time. It is to be poured all over the cake top. If it appears soggy and turns purple, then one should not panic. Gelatin present in the mix is likely to firm up, once it gets chilled. The cake is then to be kept for about 5 hours in the refrigerator and overnight is much better. This way, the grape jello becomes solid.
For removing the cake after setting of the Jello, the baking dish is to be removed from the refrigerator. It is to be placed in bigger hot water dish. The water is not to be close to the dish top, as no one will want the cake to get wet. The baking dish is to be removed after a minute. The serving platter is to be held firmly against the dish. Then the dish is to be turned over and the platter placed on the counter or table. The cake is to slip out of baking dish.
Table knife or rubber spatula is to be used for spreading thawed whipped cake above the cakes. It will be useful to be creative and have the texture as desired. If baking is not your forte, you can also order anniversary cakes online without any hassle.
