Easter is just a few weeks away. Here is a fun treat to make for any get together.

This is a very easy, colorful and delicious cake to make for your grandchildren (or children) for Easter.
I created this for a JELL-O baking contest a few years ago.  It did not win the contest, but won my grandchildren’s praise.

    1. Thank you. I made that so many years ago for a Jello contest but didn’t win. It was really moist and the kids liked it so I pulled it out of the archives. I would love to do a bunch of retro recipes sometime.
