I apologize to those who saw the first half of this post on Friday. I had written the post, but forgot to add the photos and so I took the post down. Now I have photos and am happy to share the recipe with you.
I began with a very simple yet really delicious white cake. All recipes say you can use a boxed mix for this, but I made the cake from scratch:
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup almond milk (of course you can use regular milk, we just never have real milk in the house)
1/2 cup butter or margarine at room temperature
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Put everything in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer until very smooth. Pour into a 9x13 casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees 25-30 minutes.
Pour the jell-o on top and allow it to seep into the holes of the cake. Refrigerate at least one hour. Then frost. I used a whipped cream frosting.
