Low Calorie Jammin' Jello Cake

This cake is only 3 weight watchers points for 1 piece (About 170 calories, compared to regular cake which is usually over 500 calories per piece!)The recipe makes 12 servings. It is great!!!

1 cake mix (I used butter recipe yello)
1 can of Fresca, diet sprite, or diet 7up. I always prefer Fresca. Or you can measure 1 and 1/2 cups of Fresca.

Mix these ingredients together, bake according to the directions on the box. Note: My cake was done about 5 minutes before the directions said that it would be, do not overcook it.

When the cake is out, poke holes on the top of the cake. Poke tons of holes, this will help with the jello mixture. I think I could have poked more holes and it would have spread the jello mixture better.

Mix 1 strawberry jello package (Sugar free, or any flavor you love) with 1 cup of warm water.
Spread on the top of the cake.

Refrigerate the cake for about 20 minutes.

Then, spread light whipped topping on top. I didn't use very much, maybe half of one of the small containers.

Cut and serve!!!

This is yummy!!! (Mostly because I love jello and I love cake!)

Amanda and I made this today! Turned out so yummy! We did modify the recipe slightly and only used the pop to replace the water in the cake recipe but it was still great! My cake was also done sooner then what the box said it would be. Thanks so much- can't wait to try another one of your amazing recipes!
