Quick question before i ruin my cakes....can i put flavored jello into the mix before i bake it? Alson could i put it into my buttercream with out it turning into jello or getting lumpy?
I put lime jello in yellow cake - YUM.
Add it dry with the dry ingredients.
and make no other adjustments?
Ok...i added it to the dry cake mix. Did a Margarita cake, French Vanillia Cake Mix added marg mix bought at the ABC Store which had everything in it in place of water, 1/3 cup flour and Margarita Jell-O. Came out Great! Going to see now how it works in the buttercream. Cake is very Tastey!
I don't change the ingredients, but I do find I have to cook my cakes just a little longer when I use Jello in the batter.
I use unsweetened koolaid in the buttercream. Just mix to right color then let it set an hour or so and stir. Otherwise you get little dark dots of color if it's not all dissolved. I would worry about regular jello powder having sugar that will make the butttercream kind of grainy.
Love Jello in the cake mix. Especially strawberry!
