Jell-O Cake

This cake has become a birthday tradition here. My Aunt made it for me 8 years ago when I had my first baby, and my kids choose it for their birthday cake every year still!

This makes 2 large cakes, with a creamy middle. top with your favorite fruits

500 ml whipping cream
500 ml sour cream
1 container cool whip (thawed)
2 small cans of mandarins
2 small packages of jell-o (strawberry or orange)
1 GF vanilla cake mix

prepare cake mix as directed on pkg. (I used the Bob's Red Mill vanilla cake mix)
pour into two 9" spring form pans and bake until tooth pick comes out clean - 20 mins. should do it.

take liquid from mandarin cans and heat to boiling
pour 2 pkgs of jell-o into boiling liquid
stir until dissolved
pour one cup cold water into jell-o mix
set aside to cool you don't want it to set just cool off
(put the pan in your sink surrounded with cold water for faster cooling)

prepare whipping cream in your LARGEST bowl
pour sour cream and cool whip in and stir
add cooled jell-o and stir
it seems fairly runny and you'll think it didn't work but it's ok
pour over cooled cake
refrigerate immediately

just before serving put mandarins, strawberries, and kiwis on top
