The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

This song was written in 1957. (My birth year) But my memories
of it began in 1972.  

Strawberry Jello Cake

Here is a version of the cake I made:

1 white cake mix
1 package strawberry jello
1 package frozen strawberrys
1 container topping like Cool Whip
Bake cake according to directions. Mix Jell-o with 1 cup warm water. Make several holes in top of cake without going through and then pour Jell-o over cake.
Microwave strawberries until thawed and pour on cake.

Add Cool Whip over all and refrigerate until chilled.

Here is what I did differently:
Mixed Jello with 1 cup boiling hot water. Poured it over cake as per directions above.
Mixed an instant vanilla pudding mix in the Cool Whip for the topping.
I used fresh strawberries to garnish.
Refrigerating the whole cake makes it very refreshing. Delicious.

*There is a possibility of mixing 1 cup of milk with the instant vanilla
pudding and then adding 8 oz. cool whip. It probably makes the topping
smoother (less grainy).  Either way, it's still good!
