When it comes to making and baking homemade dessert cakes I like to use recipes that are easy to prepare, bake up quickly, and taste delicious. When you use gelatin in your cake batter recipes it adds a nice flavor and coloring to your dessert cakes. It will make a boxed mix taste like a homemade gourmet cake.
Each of these recipes starts with a boxed mix that you spruce up with a few additional ingredients. When the recipe calls for a box of gelatin it is for the standard (not family-sized) box. You can top these desserts with a glaze, frosting, or icing of your choice or see the recipe for suggestions.
Lemon-Lime Gelatin Cake
- 1 box lemon-flavored cake mix
- 1 box lemon gelatin mix
- 1 box of lime gelatin mix
- 1/4 cup bottled lemon juice
- 1 cup confectioners sugar
Add gelatin mix to the dry cake mix. Proceed to make the cake following directions on the package. Pour the batter into a prepared baking pan that has been greased and lightly floured. Bake according to box instructions. Mix lemon juice and confectioners sugar together. When it has finished baking, prick with a fork all over while it is still hot and pour lemon/sugar mixture evenly over the top. This will make a nice glaze when cooled. Store in an airtight container until serving time.
