Why I Love This Recipe

My husband's birthday is today, but since it will only be 2 of us, I don't want to make a huge cake. I decided to bake one layer and create a giant "slice" of cake instead.


Ingredients You'll Need

Jiffy White cake recipe, cut in half
1 box Sugar-Free Raspberry gelatin
2 cups whipped cream
zest of one lemon
1/4 tsp. lemon extract


Directions

Bake one layer of cake using te Jiffy white cake recipe cut in half.


While cake sets aside to cool in the pan, prepare gelatin according to box instructions.


Using a skewer, poke holes across surface of cake.


Pour 1/4 cup of gelatin over cake slowly. It will soak in.


Place cake in refrigerator for at least an hour.


Meanwile fold zest into whipped cream.


To assemble: Remove cake from pan and slice off top if needed to flatten.


Cut cake layer into quarters.


Layer cake triangles with 2 Tbls. cream until you have a 4 tiered cake.


If your edges are messy, slice a thin strip off of each side to give your cake a freshly cut look.


Frost only the top and "back" of your cake slice with remaining cream.


Decorate with lemon curls or sprinkles.
