Jello Cake.
1 box yellow or white cake mix
1 lg. box Jello (strawberry or cherry)
1 1/2 c. boiling water
1 c. strawberry or cherry soda
1 lg. container Cool Whip
Prepare cake according to package directions, baking in a rectangular pan. Cool in pan. After cooling, punch holes all over cake. Mix Jello with boiling water. Dissolve Jello completely. Add soda and mix thoroughly. Pour mixture over cake evenly and let cool. I usually do mine overnight.  Then right before serving I top with Cool Whip & a few candy sprinkles.

I've made this before for 4th of July and topped with strawberries and blueberries to make an American Flay.

Naturally my "stripes" were crocked and I ate too many blueberries and ran out but yum.

My mother used to make this cake and I loved it but never knew how she made it. I should have known it was so simple, sorry, but she was not a very good cook, she tried. I do remember her letting me poke the holes in the cake with a wooden spoon handle. =)
I think I'm going to try this for sure.
