  • Ingredients

  • 16.25 ounce Moist White cake mix

  • 1 ¼ cup of water

  • 1/2 cup of melted unsalted Challenge Butter, cooled

  • 3 egg whites

  • 3 ounce package of blue berry flavored gelatin

  • 3 ounce package of strawberry flavored gelatin

  • 2 cups of boiling water, separated

  • 1 thawed tub of whipped topping

  • 8 ounces of Challenge Cream Cheese, softened

  • ¼ cup of powder sugar

  • 1 cup each of fresh sliced strawberries and blueberries

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.

  2. Grease the bottoms and sides of two 9 inch round baking pans.

  3. Add cake mix, water, melted butter and egg whites to a large mixing bowl. Beat until combined on low speed, then beat on medium for 2 minutes.

  4. Divide batter between the two prepared pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

  5. Cool cake layers for 10 minutes and remove from pan. Wipe pans clean with a paper towel and place layers back into pans.

  6. Add 1 cup of boiling water to two bowls. Stir in a package of gelatin to each bowl of water. Stir until completely dissolved.

  7. Using a fork, poke holes in cake at ½ inch intervals.

  8. Pour blue gelatin slowly over the first layer. Repeat using the strawberry gelatin on the second layer. Place cake in the refrigerator for 3 hours to set.

  9. To create frosting, combine whipped topping, cream cheese and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat until smooth and creamy.

  10. Place first layer on cake plate and spread with about ¾ cup of frosting. Carefully place second layer on top. Frost top and sides of cake. Decorate with berries for a festive look!
