  • Prepare and bake the cake in two 9-inch cake pans as instructed on the package.
  • Cool for 10 minutes in the pans and then turn out onto a cooling rack, top side down; cool completely.
  • Once cooled, place the clean cake pans over the layers and turn them back into the pans so they are top side up. Poke the cakes with a large fork (such as a meat fork) in half inch intervals all over both layers.
  • Mix one cup of boil water and the strawberry gelatin mix in a small bowl; stir for approximately 2 minutes until the gelatin dissolves.
  • Leaving the cake layers in the pan, carefully pour the strawberry gelatin mixture evenly over one of the cake layers, trying to pour in the holes as much as possible.
  • Repeat this process with the lime gelatin and the second layer of cake.
  • Cover the layers lightly with waxed paper and place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours to allow the gelatin mixture to set.
  • Just before you are ready to assemble the layers, prepare the frosting. Pour the milk, pudding mix, and powdered sugar in a mixing bowl.
  • Using a wire whisk, beat the mixture for approximately 2 minutes; carefully fold in the Cool Whip.
  • Unmold layers by placing the pans in hot water to loosen the cake. Turn out the red layer and place on a cake plate.
  • Spread a 1/4-inch layer of frosting over the first layer. Turn out the 2nd layer and place on the first layer.
  • Spread the remaining frosting evenly on the top and sides of the cake. Finish the frosting with desired decorative design. If desired, decorate the top of the cake with Christmas sprinkles.
  • Place in the refrigerator to chill for approximately 1 hour before serving.

"I made this Christmas cake last year during the holidays and it was so good. It is nice because it is kind of a light dessert but very yummy. If I remember right it was pretty easy to make too. I am going to have to find a reason to make it this year."
