I wasn't sure about putting jello into this cake. It's gelatin so I didn't know how it would set. Well, it wasn't a problem. It worked well.
It wasn't quite as orangy as I would have liked. It tasted great but it could have used more oranges. I'd be tempted to use a large box of orange jello but that might over do it. Not sure. Either way, it was a winner.
I am eager to try it with other flavors like strawberry! I'll wait until summer when strawberries are in season!
