Primordial Swamp Cake Recipe

This Great Cake Contest entry was submitted by SandraBartholomew from Warner, New Hampshire: This delicious swamp cake was created for my son's dinosaur birthday.

What you'll need

  • Yellow cake mix
  • Lime jello
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Grapes
  • Plastic dinosaurs

How to make it

  1. Make yellow cake according to directions on box. Prop clear cake/casserole pan on cookie tray using heat safe plate or such. You want it to stay at a gentle angle. Pour in cake batter so it pools at one end. Bake. Allow to cool.
  2. Make Jello according to directions on box, pour into a bowl and chill until it just starts to gel. Stir in fruit pieces. Pour into clear cake pan, allow to set completely.
  3. Add dinosaurs so they look like they are wandering out of the primordial soup onto dry land. Serve!
