Summer Cake

I love to bake. I especially bake cakes. I decorate them, and make them all from scratch. I made one of my favs today. It's great for summer because it's served cool and it's light.
Standard white cake. Once cooked and cooled pole holes throughout with a fork. Prepare your favorite jello. While still hot, pour over un-frosted cake. Once cool, frost with cool whip. yum! I use strawberry jello mix, and the whole cake tastes like strawberry shortcake.

Try it, You'll like it.

Hello all.
I'm new to this blog thing, so bear with me, if I'm kinda slow at making this blogspot cool. I'm just your average stay home mom, who has hobbies. I read a lot, bake a lot, and play with the dogs a lot. I'm active with church. I breed beagles, and they're so cute, if I do say so myself. I'll probably post mostly about the books I read and the cakes I bake. I'll let you know, what shenanigans the dogs get into.
