Betty's Tip: Once you've made this cake, be prepared to make it over and over again because kids love it! With all the flavors of gelatin, you can have a different color and flavor every time you make it! You can also use sugar-free gelatin, if that is what you keep on hand. Reserve 1/2 teaspoon dry sugar-free gelatin for the frosting and use the remaining dry gelatin in the cake.
