Five Different Jell-O Cakes

I love bundt cakes, don’t you? They're always so easy and look so pretty when done. But you can do more than that will Jell-O cakes.

Baking and cooking are two of my favorite things to do, and that's a good thing, as desserts are always a huge hit with my husband. I've made each of the recipes below many times. I hope you will enjoy them.

1. Luscious Raspberry Jell-O Bundt Cake


  • 1 large carton of ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup of sugared soda (pop), e.g. Coke or Sprite. (I wouldn't use flavors like orange.)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup raspberry yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup of oil
  • 1 small box of raspberry jello
  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup of cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Spray bundt pan very well or it will stick. Bake at 350˚F.
  2. Mix together cheese, soda, eggs and yoghurt after mixing well, add oil and jello mix well. Add cake mix, cake flour mix until smooth.
  3. Pour into bundt pan bake for 65 minutes or until a toothpick comes out smooth.

My cake doesn't have frosting because my husband didn't want any on it.

4. Broken Window Glass Cake


  • 1 package (3 ounces) each of Lime-, Orange-, and Cherry-flavored Jell-O
  • 3 cups of boiling water

  1. Prepare the lime, orange, and cherry Jell-O's separately, dissolving each in 1 cup of the boiling water and adding 1/2 cup of cold water. Pour each flavor into separate containers. Chill until firm, at least 3 hours or overnight. Cut into about 1/2 inch cubes.
  2. Mix crumbs with butter. (If you want to garnish top with crumbs, reserve 1/4 cup for that.) Press crumb mixture evenly over bottom and up sides to within 1 inch from top of a 9-inch springform or tube pan; chill.
  3. Dissolve lemon gelatin and sugar in 1 cup boiling water add pineapple juice. Chill until slightly thickened. Blend in whipped topping. Fold in gelatin cubes. Spoon into crumb-lined pan. Chill overnight or until firm.
  4. Just before serving, run a spatula around sides of pan; then gently remove sides. Garnish with reserved crumbs or with additional whipped topping and flaked coconut, tinted, or sprinkles if desired.

This cake can be changed around you can use just Christmas colors or Halloween colors and colors you would like to use. The picture you see is my cake. I made my cake different using 1 package (3 ounces) each Lime flavor Jell-O, 1 Berry Blue flavor Jell-O, 1 Cranberry flavor Jell-O, and my cubes are bigger than they should be. You can do anything with this cake.

        Definitely love the idea of putting Jello in cakes. Your recipes are tempting me to make one today. That first one, the Raspberry one sounds really moist and delicious.

        Came back to take another look at your recipes. Just may have to try the no bake margarita Jello cheesecake the next time we have a dinner party. As to the first recipe, is it a regular 6 or 8 ounce size yogurt that you use? Up votes and sharing.

        Pamela99 and Granny's House thanks for stopping by my hubpage. It is a good cake having trouble keeping my hands off of it. I bake for my husband then taste for me and that's usually it. Try to stay away from sugar. Not Easy.
