Recipe of the Month - February 2011


When I was working on this recipe, I wasn’t sure what to name it. I thought of calling it a Pink Cake or Valentine Cake. Whatever you call it, you and your family will want more.

for the cake:
1 box white cake mix
1 package – 4 serving – raspberry gelatin

for the frosting:
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
sprinkles, for decorating

Prepare cake batter as directed on cake box, substituting milk for the water and add jello to the batter. Bake according to cake directions. Cool completely before frosting.
To make the frosting, pour the cream into a medium bowl and beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gently add the sugar and vanilla. Beat until combined.
Place 1 layer of cake on a cake stand. Spread half of the frosting onto the top of the first layer of cake. Top with the second cake. Spread rest of the frosting onto the top of the second cake, leaving the sides bare. Decorate the top with candy sprinkles.
Serves 12.
