My hunny and I love, love, love this simple recipe! This came out so good, we'll have to be sure to make this when we have company coming over. We have nearly devoured the entire cake ourselves. I used cherry jello, and for the cool whip frosting, I added four drops of red food coloring, which gave it a really pretty pink color. Tiny pink sprinkes finish it off. Lovely low-cost weeknight dessert, or take it to a pot luck and watch as guests heartily gobble it up before your very eyes.
