- One box white cake mix
- 3 eggs

- 3 ounce box of cherry flavored Jell-O
- 1 tub Cool Whip
Preheat oven according to box directions.
Add the cake mix, eggs, oil to the bowl along with the cherry juice. Mix it all together. You can also add a little bit of food coloring if you want your cake to be a little bit more pink.
Pour the batter into a 9×13 pan and bake according to directions.
When you pull it out of the oven, use the end of a wooden spoon to poke holes all over the cake.
Prepare the Jell-O by mixing 1 cup boiling water into the powdered Jell-O mix and stir until dissolved. Add in 1 cup of 7 up and mix it.
Pour Jell-O mixture over the cake so it goes into all the holes.
Refrigerate the cake overnight.
Spread the Cool Whip over the cake and enjoy!
