You could also make a poke cake out of a dry cake. Use the handle of a wooden spoon to poke holes about 2 inches apart all over the cake. In a small bowl, mix a 3 oz. pkg of strawberry jello and 1 cup boiling water for 2 minutes until thoroughly dissolved. Add 1/2 cup very cold water. Stir. Pour over cake making sure to cover entire cake. Chill for 3 hours. Spread with whipped cream. Serve.

I will keep that in mind for an future disasters. The cake had cinnamon and pine nuts so strawberry jello would not have worked...I made a cake with jello the other day for the first time in my life was pretty good

Glad it worked out for you!

I've messed up many recipes in my day by not paying enough attention, it's nice when you can still use the product, but in a different way!
