Birthday and Big Red Cake

100 Page Views!  How exciting!!

My best friend of 26 years celebrated her birthday at the beginning of the month.  She absolutely loves Big Red.  I actually don't think I have met anyone else that loves it SO much!  A few years back she requested that I make her a Big Red cake.   I had never heard of this so I went in search of a recipe.  As it turns out, it is one of the easiest cakes you can make.  Ready for the secret??  It is made from a BOX cake!  This is one of the most delicious cakes I have ever made.  It is a hit every year and this year it did not disappoint!  I, unfortunately did no get a good picture of it this year but I have one from a previous year.
I could not get the it to turn but you get the picture!

Here is the recipe.
Big Red Cake

1 yellow or white cake mix

1 family size strawberry Jello

1 1/2 c. water

1 can Big Red soda

Bake the cake according to the package directions in a 13x9 baking dish. While the cake is baking add the remaining ingredients to a sauce pan.  Stir just until the Jello is dissolved.

 Let the cake cool for about 10 minutes and poke cake with the handle of a wooden spoon.  Pour the Big Red mixture over the cake. 


1 reg. size vanilla pudding
1 container of Cool Whip
1 1/2 c. milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl until stiff.   Pour and spread over cooled cake.  Store in the refrigerator.

My BFF and I!
