    I make something very similar to this. But I make a white or yellow cake mix as directed on the box. Except I replace the eggs with egg beaters, and the oil with applesauce. The mix 1 packet of sugar free jello with just under 2 cups of water. Then frost with fat free cool whip. - 3/9/09

    This is better and has less fat if you use an angel food cake. It doesn't get mushy!! - 3/11/09

    I use low sugar cake mix, sugar free/fat free jello, applesauce for the oil and cool whip light. Still tastes wonderful - 3/12/09

    I've made this cake for years, except I use two different kinds of jello for holiday's such as cherry and lime. I pour one on top of the cake, then the next over that layer after I refrigerate it for about 20 minutes. Then I save some jello and mix with cool whip and put on top of the cake. mmmmm - 3/10/09

    I have made this cake on many occasions however I have used cherry jello and topped the cake with cherry pie filling. It looks very festive - have made it for work around Valentine's Day and it has become a favorite. - 3/9/09
