You can also get as creative as you want with this; changing up the jello and fruit – the possibilities are endless! Here’s another cake I made last year with the basics of this same recipe.

Ingredients for Raspberry Jello Cake:

The jello mousse portion is the star of the show and all it requires is a package of raspberry jello and whipped topping. So easy!! The bottom layer is our classic European sponge cake but you could easily use lady fingers in a pinch and it will still taste great!

I love that this jello cake is potluck and party friendly. It isn’t too complicated and it’s convenient to transport and serve (less chances of it sliding off your cake plate and landing upside down on the sidewalk as you get out of the car arriving for Thanksgiving dinner! That happened to my cheesecake last year… it was a very sad moment.

P.S. Thanks for sharing your similar sad/hilarious stories on Instagram).  My friend Laura from church made this jello mousse cake for a church potluck a few years ago and I’ve been smitten ever since! I hope you love the recipe and find the video below handy!

Author: Natasha of NatashasKitchen.com
Skill Level: Easy/Medium
Cost to Make: $10-$12
Servings: 12 -16 servings

Ingredients

For the Raspberry Mousse:

  • 6 oz package raspberry jello
  • 8 oz tub cool whip thawed in the fridge

For the Cake Layer:

For the Syrup:

Topping Ingredients:

  • 3 oz package raspberry jello
  • 6 oz package raspberries

Instructions

Start making the Jello Mousse:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine 6 oz jello with 2 cups boiling water. Stir until dissolved then add 1 cup cold water (this is 1/2 of the cold water the package calls for). Let jello sit at room temp until just starting to set. Note: If you need to speed set jello, you can refrigerate it for 10-15 minutes at the end or until the jello is syrupy and soft set.

How to Make the Cake & Simple Syrup: Preheat Oven to 350˚F. Line the bottom of a 13x9 Glass baking dish with parchment paper. Don't grease the sides.

  1. Beat 4 large eggs with the whisk attachment for 1 min on high speed. With the mixer on, add 1/2 cup sugar and continue beating on high speed for 5 min until thick and fluffy. Fold in 1/4 tsp vanilla.
  2. Sift in 1/2 cup flour in thirds into the batter, folding it in between each addition. When mixing, scrape the bottom of the bowl to ensure you don't have pockets of flour hiding at the bottom. Fold until no streaks of flour remain; do not over-mix or you will deflate the batter. Spread batter evenly into lined glass dish and bake at 350˚F for 18-20 minutes, or until top is golden brown and springs back when poked slightly.
  3. Remove from oven, cut away from edges, invert onto a cooling rack and peel back the parchment paper. (Note: Let cake sit on top of the peeled back parchment paper to cool - I have found that sometimes it sticks to a cooling rack and can be hard to pry off after it cools down). Rinse and dry the baking dish then return cooled cake back to the pan.
  4. Combine the syrup ingredients: 1/2 cup warm water, 2 Tbsp sugar and 1 tsp lemon juice and set aside to cool to room temp. Brush the top of the cooled cake evenly with syrup.

Finish the Jello Mousse and Topping:

  1. Once jello is starting to thicken and has a slight wiggle to it, beat in 8 oz cool whip. Tip: If your mousse is watery, you should refrigerate it for 10-15 minutes until it's slightly thickened, but keep an eye on it so it doesn't set too much or it will be hard to spread.
  2. Pour the mousse over the cake layer and spread evenly. Top with raspberries, pushing them down slightly into the mousse. Refrigerate 1 hour or until mousse is set. Meanwhile, start making your jello topping.
  3. In a large measuring cup, combine 3 oz jello with 1 cup boiling water and stir until gelatin is dissolved. Add 1/2 cup cold water and let cool to room temp. (Tip: Never pour warm jello over the mousse or you'll end up with a creamy layer on top) Pour jello over the back of a spoon into the pyrex dish and refrigerate another hour or until fully set.

    Not sure why my review hasn’t gone through. Maybe I forgot to click send or something which I wouldn’t put pass me with my scattered brain lolz.
    I have to say it was wonderful! Not too sweet either which I love. Everyone loved it!
    I used thickened cream and whip it up to whipping consistency. It did originally looked watery but thickened up really good and I used aeroplane jelly (Australian jello) Reply

    Hi natasha, will be making in soon. Just wondering as many recipes from american websites have a more on the very heavily sugar sweet which i do not prefer and tend to cut sugar in half.
    Is this cake super sweet? I also am using whipping cream that i will whip up as we don’t have cool whip here. Hope it turns out. Reply

  • Laura
    August 4, 2018

    I had difficulty with this recipe. I followed the directions, and the cake stuck to the rack anyway. Also, the part about brushing the syrup over the cake…the whole amount or just brush enough to cover the top? Also, jello takes a loooong time to start to set at room temperature. One really must refrigerate it a bit. Reply

    • Natasha
      August 4, 2018

      Hi Laura, I do use the full amount of syrup. With the jello, make sure you are following the instructions in the recipe and not per the box, otherwise it will take longer. I hope that helps! Reply

    Hi Natasha; I’ve made this (but orange) for my husband and it’s his favourite dessert. It’s tricky and I’m learning about patience 😉 But worth the effort. My biggest problem now that I don’t rush the jello and mousse layers, is how much the cake shrinks when it cools. Is this normal? I always have to cut it to fit a smaller pan, though today I’m trying to stuff the end space with parchment. I don’t want to lose the top layers down the sides. Thank you for this wonderful recipe that has enabled me to recreate a hotel dessert my husband described to me. Reply

    • Natasha
      June 3, 2018

      I’m so glad you love this recipe!! It does help to not grease the sides of the pan when baking the cake, otherwise the cake can pull away from the edges. I hope that is helpful 🙂 Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      April 29, 2018

      Hi Kalpi, if the jello has not set, it may be due to using either a different sized jello package than what is stated in the recipe or changing the measurement of water added. I recall another reader added water according to the package instructions rather than according to the recipe and that would cause the mousse not to set properly. I hope that helps to troubleshoot! Reply

      December 11, 2017

      Hi Maggie, I usually have the serving size in the print friendly recipe card towards the bottom. This one serves 12-16 people since it is the larger glass baking dish. You could double it but you will probably have to make the cake 2 separate times in 2 separate equal sized casserole dishes. Reply

    Is there a reason for Cool Whip instead of real whipped cream? I refuse to buy this item. Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      August 27, 2017

      Hi Lyn, I use it here because it is more stable when folded. I really haven’t tested it with anything else but the next best thing would probably be whipped cream. Again, I haven’t tested it and you should make sure your jello is soft set. If it’s too liquidy, the whipped cream would just melt into it. Reply

    Natasha can i use a springform pan for this recipe? It would make cutting the slices much easier at the end. It was very difficult for me to cut the first slice last time I made this with a regular glass pan. Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      July 6, 2017

      Hi Sali, It would have to be a very large springform pan or you would need to cut the recipe down. The springform would also need to have a perfectly tight fitting ring so the jello doesn’t seep through the pan. I would suggest cutting the sponge cake away from the baking dish to make serving much easier. I hope that helps for next time! 🙂 Reply

    Hi Natasha, I was looking for something special to make for a play date for kids. And then I saw this recipe. I couldn’t find raspberry flavored jello, so I tried strawberry. Loved it! Thank you for the recipe, kids and adults enjoyed it so much! Also I made sponge before for a different cake and I used same method for the Jello cake. Just want to share how I did it, a bit different. First I separated whites from yolks. And then I whipped yolks with half of the sugar. After that I whiped whites with the rest of the sugar until stiff. Combined them carefully and added flour, folded them together same way as you described. I am sure the final result would be all the same.
    Your ideas are so good, I read your website daily and I always find something for every occasion. )) Reply

    Hi Natasha,
    the cake was great and the jello mousse tastes really good.
    However, when I last poured the jello on the mousse it went down .. so I did not have a jello layer on the top as you did. Do you know why ? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      April 18, 2017

      I’m so glad you enjoyed the flavors. The reason that would happen is if the mousse part isn’t spread out to the edges. If there are gaps in the mousse, the liquid jello will sneak down into the cake. Also, if the jello is too warm, it can melt the mousse part and sneak down to the bottom. Reply

    Hi Natasha, I was supper excited to find your recipes. I tried your cupcakes and chocolate buttercream and decided to make this but sponge cake was a total disaster. I do not have Kitchen Aid mixer but I have pretty powerful. Do you think it because of mixer? Eggs didnt get that white and foamy… So I ended up making just a layered jello.. 🙂 Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      February 11, 2017

      Hi Diana, it’s usually because of the mixer. If you use a hand electric mixer, you typically have to add a few minutes to the mixing time to incorporate enough air into the eggs for it to rise properly. Also, make sure you are baking right away and not letting the batter sit on the counter. Have your oven pre-heated and ready to go 🙂 Reply

          February 14, 2017

          The biggest reason why the cake doesn’t rise is due to under-beating the eggs because the eggs and sugar rely on the air whipped into them for leavening. I hope that helps. Reply

      Hi Lily, the recipe is for a sponge cake and it works well. I would say to keep in mind how well the cake you have in mind absorbs moisture and if it’s the type of sponge cake like angel food cake that will get mushy with liquid, than avoid adding syrup to the cake. Reply

      Hi Alla, did you use parchment or wax paper? I have found that wax paper sticks badly so I only recommend parchment. Also, it helps to remove the backing right after it comes out of the oven – it comes off easiest while the cake is still warm. Reply

    Our mousse is still watery even after 15 minutes in the fridge. It’s very bubbly on the top layer. It’s like the cool whip doesn’t want to be mixed in with the jello. What can we do? Or do we have to restart? Reply

      Hi Nina, I replied earlier to your question on YouTube but just in case you didn’t see it: “you may have added the Cool Whip into the Jell-O too early. The Jell-O should have been soft set when you add the Cool Whip. It should still be OK, it will probably just need more time to set in the refrigerator.” Reply

      November 22, 2016

      It sounds like your mousse is too thin when you are adding it. It shouldn’t slide down the sides. I would suggest waiting until your jello is soft set (thickly pours off a spoon), before whisking in refrigerated cool whip. If it seems watery after the two are mixed together you can pop it into the fridge for a few minutes until it thickens slightly.

          That is odd, you might try putting it in the fridge for a few minutes for it thicken up a little more. Also, are you baking the cake in the same pan you are serving it in (I find this is best for the cake layer to fit in the pan without being too small). I hope that make sense. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Reply

      Hi Alla, yes that would work. For the cake part, beat the eggs and sugar 2 to 3 minutes longer than normal on the highest speed. Otherwise, everything else stays the same and it’s perfectly ok to use an electric hand mixer. Reply

    This cake looks so yummy! I had a quick question, do you have to bake the sponge cake on the parchment paper first and take it out? Or can I just bake it in the glass dish and wait for it to cool before the simple syrup. I love all your recipes by the way:) Reply

    • Natasha

      November 21, 2016

      Hi Yana, the parchment paper is important, otherwise the cake will get stuck to the dish (since there is no oil or butter in the cake) and it will be difficult to serve the jello. Reply

    Hi natasha
    I hope I get a reply from you because I once asked you something and I haven’t got any answer.. anyway
    I used a powder whipping cream and used the heavy jello syrup instead of milk.. it did for a moose but it was too sweet and it didn’t taste yummy.. do I have to add maybe milk with the jello or the powder whipping cream is totally wrong ?
    And one more thing.. actually I had cake leftover so I used it as the bottom layer but it crambled so badly . So is there something to add to it to hold it together or again the recipe is to be stuck to ?
    Thanks in advance 🙂 Reply

      Hi Sarah, the only comment that I show you’ve left on my blog was on my sponge cake and I do see a reply from me on 2016/07/10 at 2:56 pm. I hope you are able to find it. If it was another question, it is possible that it went to spam although unlikely if I am able to see your comment then and now. Maybe it didn’t finish submitting before you closed the browser? I’ve never used a powder whipping cream so I really can’t guess or give you advice on that substitution. I’ve never had my sponge cake crumble in this recipe. If you are using a different cake base than the one listed, I’m not sure what to advise on that. Reply

      Hi Lily, did you use your own fresh eggs or store-bought? Fresh eggs have a darker yolk and the cake turns out yellow rather than white as with store-bought eggs. If they were store-bought, did you use a good electric mixer to beat them on high speed as per instructions? Reply

      Hi Asya, I really haven’t tested it with anything else but the next best thing would probably be whipped cream. Again, I haven’t tested it and you should make sure your jello is soft set. If it’s too liquidy, the whipped cream would just melt into it. Reply

    Hello,
    I was looking for a solution for my little girls’ 5-year birthday cake. She would like a chocolate cake with white icing and a large red Jello heart on it. I saw your recipe and I was wondering if it would be possible to add the jello straight onto the cake using the spoon trick you mentioned? I have not really used jello before so any tips would be appreciated. Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      May 5, 2016

      Hi Heidi, I hope I understand what you are trying to do – you ultimately want a jello heart laying on top of your cake? I would probably make a firm jello (per the jello jigglers instrucitons on the package) so you could transfer the heart after it’s made. I would make the heart jello first in the mold (I’m not sure how else you would make a heart without a mold though), and then after the jello sets, I would suggest carefully transferring it over the top of your cake. Putting liquid jello directly over a cake is very tricky because depending on what kind of cake you have, the cake will just absorb alot of the jello before it has a chance to set. I sure hope my reply is helpful to you! Reply

    Looks great! I seem to have made it too loose. I followed the recipe and video. Maybe the mousse was too liquid? When I went to check it after an hour it had completely absorbed in the cooled cake. Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      February 22, 2016

      It sounds like the mousse was probably too liquid. Did you wait until the jello was slightly set before adding the cool whip, per this step: “1. Once jello is starting to thicken and has a slight wiggle to it, beat in 8 oz cool whip. Tip: Your mousse is watery, you should refrigerate it for 10-15 minutes until it’s slightly thickened, but keep an eye on it so it doesn’t set too much or it will be hard to spread.” Reply

        Thank you for the yummy and easy recipe. I tried it and it was a hit for a small potluck. Now I am planning to make this cake for my baby birthday, need advice on few things here please,,,
        1. I want to double the bread cake layer, do I just need to double the egg , sugar and flour quantity?
        2. Need to increase the sweet level in the whipping and jello layer, can I add a sugar, while mixing the jello? How much do u suggest?
        3. I want to add real strowberry in between two bread layers with whipping topping.does that ruin the whipping layer after I add syrup for the top bread.

        Thank you thank you so much for your time and encouraging basic bakers like me to be a cake pro soon.. Reply

          I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Yes, to double the cake, you will need to double that portion of the recipe. If your mixer is not very large, I suggest doing it in 2 separate batches and baking them separately. The easiest way to add more sugar is to add it to the sugar/water syrup that soaks the cake layer. Putting strawberries between the two cake layers should work fine. If you post a picture of it somewhere, I’d love to see it! 🙂 Reply

      February 15, 2016

      Hi Amy, I think that could work. It depends on how heavy/dense the cake is that you’re sandwiching it between. Being a wedding cake, I’d definitely recommend testing it first before the big event 🙂 Reply

    Hi Natasha I just found this recipe and can’t wait to try it! I just had a quick question. When everything is done have you ever tried to use like a cookie cutter to slice through the cake to make shapes? Like a heart or a tree.

    i want to make this for my grandma’s bday she loves rasberries. So i made a trial one yesterday and the mousse layer its semi firm in the big pan but the smaller pieces i cut, the mousse is runny-ish. I was wondering to make it more firm should i decrease the cool whip or decrease the water from 3 total cups to 2?

    the second problem was the jello layer would slide off a bit. not sure if its because the mousse didn’t set firm enough or cuz i left the cake/mousse layer overnight and then put the jello layer on this morning so its not sticking to the mousse well? What do you think?

    thanks! great recipe otherwise tho, the difference in the consistency maybe due to vegetarian jello (no gelatin i think it uses agar agar or whatever). Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      November 21, 2015

      I have not tried the vegetarian Jell-O so I can’t say for sure if that is the cause of the consistency issue. If you want it thicker, you might reduce the water by 1/2 cup to 1 cup. I would do that before reducing the amount of Cool Whip in the recipe. Happy birthday to your grandma! 🙂 Reply

      • manali
        November 22, 2015

        thanks. is the mousse generally the same consistency as the jello (thats the way it appears in the video)? or slightly looser than jello layer? towards the end of the cake today it seemed more firm, i think i’ll just retry the mousse/jello layer this week and see if i can stiffen it slightly before the party, make it a little ahead of time so it has time to stiffen, would really love to use this recipe for the party! Reply

    Please correct the jello to: “make as described on the box”. The jello calls for 3/4cup for every 3oz. I used two 3oz boxes, leaving me with 6oz as per your instructions. You said two cups when it should have been less. I waited my time and money because the recipe was wrong!; Reply

    • Natasha

      July 23, 2015

      It still should have worked out if you used one cup of cold water rather than what the box calls for. I could not write “use package instructions” because it was not per package instructions. This recipe calls for less cold water than the package actually states. I hope that makes sense. Reply

      You really have to wait for the top jello layer to cool to room temperature. If it’s warm at all, it will cause the mousse layer underneath to melt an “foam up.” I’ve made that mistake before, that’s why I added the tip in section III, Step #3. I hope that helps for next time. It was a major bummer when it happened to me too. Reply

      You could make it without and it would still taste great, but it’s prettier with that last layer 🙂 Reply

      December 26, 2014

      I haven’t tried this one with anything else besides cool whip. Do you have anything called “whipped topping”? It should be in the freezer section of your grocery store. It’s hard to recommend something without testing it myself. Sorry I can’t be more helpful. Reply

          I haven’t tried using whipping cream in this recipe. I know there are some natural substitutes on the market in leu of Cool whip, but for this recipe, I just haven’t tested home-whipped cream so I can’t really advise. If you do test it, let me know how it worked. Reply

      To be honest, I haven’t tried it with mascarpone so I’m not sure how it would affect the consistency. If you test it, let me know how it goes. 🙂 Reply

    This recipe didn’t look good at the beginning, because I’m not a good baker :), but towards the end it was soo good! I am so proud of myself, thanks to your awesome website! I had some mousse left so I decided to make the mousse cups from a recipe on Olga’s flavor factory, another great food blog….
    thanks! Reply

    Hi I was wandering can I make my own whip cream? How much of heavy whip cream do I need ?? Thanks Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      December 4, 2014

      I would say 1 cup of whipping cream would be enough, which makes about 2 cups of whipped cream. 🙂 I’ve made it before with whipped cream and it did work well. The pretzels were a little softer the next day than with the cool whip, but it still worked. I’d say eat it sooner rather than later if using heavy cream. Reply

    hello Natasha,
    thanks for this amazing recipe. the jello that goes on top does not seem to become “jellied” but remains liquid. is that the same kind as the once you used for the mousse? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      December 3, 2014

      Does it remain liquid even after you refrigerate it? Are you talking about the very top third layer of regular jello? Does it not set at all? Did you use the correct sized jello package? It’s the same one I used for the strawberry jello cake with strawberries on the sides. Reply

    Thank you for your effort!

    I’ve been wanting to get this recipe ever since I tried it! Thank you for posting such an easy but yet delicious recipe! Also wanted to point out the the printer friendly copy “3 oz package raspberry jello (made with 2 cups hot water and 1 cup cold water)” got me confused. Because really you are using 1 cup boiling water and 1/2 cup cold. Sorry not trying to sound like a blog editor just don’t want others to get confused. 🙂 Reply
