Marbled cake mixes, strawberry flavored gelatin and bananas combine to make this crowd
sized Banana Split Cake. Wonderfully moist and creamy, I just love the chocolate rich banana splits.
(Makes a great Graduation or any Special Day Cake)

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in cold water, set aside at room temperature. Prepare and bake cake. Cool cake in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Level the top of cake with a large sharp knife. Turn cake onto platter or foil-covered cake board, cool an additional 10-15 minutes. Poke deep holes through top of cake with meat fork, space holes about 1 inch apart. With a cup, slowly pour gelatin mixture over cooled cake. Set cake into refrigerator while preparing filling.
Mix the instant pudding mix and cold milk in bowl, fold in whipped topping. Using a long serrated knife, split cake into two horizontal layers. A flat cookie sheet makes a convenient large "spatula" for lifting and replacing the top layer. Spread filling on bottom layer, add banana slices and replace top layer. Ice Banana Split Cake with white buttercream icing.
Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
