Today has been a very informative day at work. Not only have I been getting all my work done but I learned how to make Jello cake and let me tell you it is an experience. I wanted to share how we make it because there are so many ways.

First thing we did was make a sheet cake in the oven and let it cool.
Next we mixed up some cherry Jello and we let it disolve for 3 minutes so in the mean time we poked tons of holes in the cake with a fork.
Then we poured the Jello on top of the cake and it soaked in the fork holes, and we put it in the cooler so it sits over night.
Tomorrow we will frost the cake and serve it by the piece.

It is not a very fancy recipe but when you are cooking for 1000 kids a day you have to keep it simple. AND I learned something today.

This is one of the perks at my job and that is when I need a break from paper work or the computer I just head to the kitchen to cook something new!
