I used regular icing and blue jello to make a lake complete with candy fish and a man fishing. Turned out great! Love this idea! I can see some real different cakes in the future with other variations on it...
This cake is very forgiving. I had problems right from the beginning. I couldn't get the cake out of the pan, and it broke into 3 pieces. The jello soaked into the cake, but I stuck it in the fridge anyways, and my friends loved it. I made marshmallow trees! I made a chocolate buttercream icing instead of the Cool Whip. I thought it was going to taste terrible, but it was FANTASTIC!
Made this cake guess I didn't let my jello set enough it sunk right into the cake Disaster.Make sure your jello is really set
I have been wanting to do this cake for 2 years but did not know how to get around the jello filling. I made this cake, using my own recipe but with your decoration ideas. I used white icing with green coloring for the greens, and light brown sugar for the sand trap. Thanks for the idea, the cake was gorgeous. I will try the whole recipe when I make it again for my grandson, he likes jello
super idea, super easy to make, just make sure jello is deep enough for a dark green color. This was for my husband, kids loved it.
Not as easy to make as it would seem...need 2 packs of Jello. Make sure to allow chocolate to really cool in order for it to blend with Cool Whip.
I made this for a family dinner and nobody wanted to eat it, they were afraid of destroying how much effort i put into it. Little did they know, it wasn't that hard!
I made this cake for a golf tournament / BBQ. It was a big hit. My only suggestion is if you are making it the night before, do not put the pretzels in until the next day as they will get really soggy. Other than that... it was great.
I followed the instructions, and poured the jello on to the cake when it was partially set, and it all sank to the bottom of the cake. I was in a remote location with no source to get more green jello so the cake looked pathetic.
Mixing the cool whip with the cooled chocolate turned out lumpy.
The cake tasted OK, but I had to explain what it was.
The palm trees did turn out perfect
I made this cake for my son's birthday (29yrs) because he is a golfer and works at a golf shop, he was very impressed and needless to say there was not much cake left when he and his buddies got hold of it. Thanks again Kraft for another great idea.
Everyone was very impressed and enjoyed the cake very much. However, I had to run out and buy another pkg of jello as one only filled it up about 3/4 of the way and my hole was very similar to the one in the picture. Buy an extra pkg...better to have too much than not enough.
I made this cake for a birthday on the weekend and everyone loved it! It was an instant hit! Instead of the chocolate whipped icing I used regular icing and added green food colouring making it look like a fairway!
The guys made this for their pre-golf pot luck, they had a lot of fun doing it. The company o'd and au'd - it was delicious.
I drew big applause for this cake, presented to my husband for his 45th. I had fun making it and remembered from another rating not to let the chocolate cool down too much.
This weekend, my sisters and I will make the train cake for our father's 65th. He's just a big kid anyway!!
Very easy to make but looks like you put an effort into it. Hint: don't let the chocolate cool down too much or it won't blend evenly with the whipped cream.
