Raspberry lemonade Jell-o Cake

As I was preparing for the baby’s first birthday party I started considering what cake to make.  My husband’s all time favorite is Jell-o cake and I thought it would be fun to try it.  I also made it a pink camo cake which was fun too!  The cake turned out awesome, Grammy touted it as the best cake I’ve made yet and my sister even asked to take a piece home to her fiancee.  This just doesn’t happen because my deserts are usually considered too healthy…

I started with the white cake recipe from an earlier blog post and changed it slightly, it came out so much fluffier than the original recipe that I updated that recipe.  You can find the improved version here:  white cake recipe

In order to make the cake camo colored I added red food coloring to the batter and mixed it well. I scooped dolops of the batter randomly around the pan and changed the color in the remaining batter.  I repeated this process about four times, using 3 shades of pink and 2 shades of purple until I had covered the pan and used all the batter.  I also used this process with the whipped topping to make the frosting camo colored.
