I have a week off in between closing one show and starting another, so of course I was going to take that opportunity to make something!
This seemed easy enough, just layering ingredients together. Crushing strawberries was an interesting experience. Maybe I didn’t crush them enough, because the amount of strawberries I had was not enough to cover a 9×13 pan. I had a slightly smaller one on hand so I used that one instead, and that was still a little bit of a stretch to get them to cover the whole pan.
After that, it was really simple. Sprinkle the jello, layer some marshmallows, pour the cake batter over the whole thing, ta da.
Now. I’ve never made upside down cake before. So I was terrified of flipping this over. My roommates were excited regardless-either they got cake or they got to watch a cooking fail.
Luckily, it all worked out! Once I cut off a piece, I was surprised to see that the jello and marshmallow baked into the cake. It makes the cake super moist and soft.
So, definitely give this one a shot!
