For the Cake:
- 1 box (18.25 oz) of white cake mix
- 1 cup of milk
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
- 1 box (3 oz) of raspberry Jello
- 1 cup of boiling water
- 1 jar (18 oz) of seedless raspberry jam
For the Frosting:
- 1/2 cup of softened butter
- 2 cups of powdered sugar
- 1 Tbsp of milk
- A pinch of salt
- 1 jar (11 oz) of marshmallow creme
- 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
- 7 oz of sweetened shredded coconut
Step 1: Creating the Cake Foundation
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and generously grease a 9×13-inch baking pan.
- In a spacious mixing bowl, start by blending together the white cake mix, milk, vegetable oil, and eggs. Gradually increase the mixing speed to medium and continue for 2 minutes until the batter is smooth and well-combined.
- Pour this luscious batter into your prepared pan, spreading it out evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center emerges clean and crumb-free.
- Remove the golden-brown cake from the oven and allow it to cool for 30 minutes, ensuring it’s just right for the next step.
Step 2: Poking and Raspberry Magic 5. Take the end of a wooden spoon and poke holes all over the cake’s surface.
- In a separate bowl, dissolve the raspberry Jello in the boiling water, ensuring it’s well-stirred. Carefully spoon the Jello mixture over the cake, aiming to fill those inviting holes with its vibrant raspberry essence.
- Now, unveil the jar of seedless raspberry jam, and with a quick microwave stint of about 1 minute, transform it into a velvety, liquid heaven. Gently spread this jam over the cake, letting it cascade down into the Jello-filled holes.
Step 3: Chill and Embrace the Raspberry Infusion 8. Your cake is nearing perfection! Refrigerate it for at least 2 hours, allowing the raspberry infusion to meld with the cake’s layers.
Step 4: Whipped Marshmallow Frosting 9. In a petite bowl, whip together the softened butter, powdered sugar, a pinch of salt, and 1 tablespoon of milk. Blend until this mixture becomes irresistibly light and fluffy.
- Incorporate the marshmallow creme and a touch of vanilla extract into the mix, then continue blending on low until everything harmoniously combines.
- It’s time to crown your chilled cake with this decadent frosting. Spread it generously over the top, embracing every inch of raspberry goodness.
Step 5: The Finishing Touch 12. To complete this masterpiece, sprinkle a generous layer of sweetened shredded coconut over the frosting, adding a delightful textural contrast.
