Birthday Cake Jello Parfait

This Cake Jello Parfait is so good and mixed with two of my favorite desserts. You can bring joy to your guests when you serve them, these delicious Cake-flavored gelatin cups. In this recipe is layers of sweet gelatin flavored with cake. The Parfaits are cool and smooth, and more than fun to serve. Jello has its way of making anyone’s day better, whether it is from the fun consistency or the tasty flavors.
