This would be a very pretty cake for St. Patty's...Not only is it pretty and festive,
it is also tasty and incredibly easy. My daughter and her friends gobbled it right up.
This would be great for a Spring Pot luck or take it to a Easter get together. We eat
with our eyes first and this is so pretty! Don't forget your colored sprinkles.
You also can use any flavor gelatin...Strawberry, orange, lemon and raspberry.
