"This cake sounds really good but I don't like cakes that use box mixes. I prefer to make a cake from scratch. A white cake made from scratch with the raspberry gelatin and frozen raspberries is a better way to go f'or me. I haven't tried it yet so I won't rate it until I make it."

"This cake was SO moist and delicious! It was sweet but not super sweet, with a little bit of raspberry tartness. I do use applesauce instead of oil in cakes which makes them more moist and is a healthier alternative option. We loved the whipped cream topping instead of frosting as well.. Super yummy! We'll be making this one again."

"Sorry but this recipe didn't go over well in my house. It was too processed and sugary for us. It looks so delicious!"

"The cake was very good and easy to make. The only change to the instructions I would make is to mix the dry cake mix and the jello thoroughly. I poured the jello mix on top of the cake mix and then added the rest of the ingredients and wound up with clumps of jello that where the consistency of thick fruit leather. I solved the problem by taking out the pieces and mixing them with a small amount of water and microwaving it for a few seconds, stirring it and adding it back to the batter."
