Kool Aid cake?

I remember my Aunt making it when I was a kid. I think she made a white or butter sheet cake (9X13) then after it cooled she poured a kool aid mixture over it then it went into the cake. After being in the refer for a while it was frosted with some kind of whip creamy good stuff LOL
Does anybody know this recipe? Please !!Thanks.....Julie

  • this is what I found on-line, hope it helps

    Kool-Aid Cake

    List of Ingredients

    1/4 cup of your favorite flavor kool-aid powder
    1 box of your cake mix- yellow cake works best in most cases
    What you'll do is mix the kool-aid powder with whatever amount of water the cake recipe calls for. That's it. If your cake calls for a cup of water, then mix the powder into that cup of water and then add it to the batter.

    The kool-aid tropical fruit flavors go best with the yellow cake and frosted with vanilla frosting.

    You can even make a black forest cake. Just use your favorite chocolate cake mix and add in the cherry kool-aid mix.

    The cake mix, once finished, will come out a little lighter than the color of the batter. So it's even fun for kids' birthday parties. You know how it is, when the birthday kid wants his/her cake to be a specific color, like blue, pink or even green. Well, now

  • My husband and kids LOVE jello cake. It's soooo easy to make too and that's a plus. Had to add my 2 cents, it's definitely an easy delicious treat.
