Gelatin Jiggler Strawberry Cake Recipe

These little strawberry cakes are made of gelatin rather than cake ingredients but they make wonderful desserts and they are so simple to put together. You can use any gelatin flavors you want but grape and strawberry taste good together and you get an attractive deep red colored gelatin from combining these flavors. The gelatin is combined with water and cherry coke but you could just use water if you like. The cherry coke does add to the rich flavor though.

These strawberry cakes are topped with whipped cream and a fresh strawberry. This is a wonderful dessert and both adults and kids love these treats. For a healthier version, you could use sugar free gelatin and diet coke instead of regular gelatin and cherry coke. Switch the whipped cream for yogurt and you have a healthy and delicious snack or dessert recipe.

If you do not want to make a traditionally fluffy strawberry cake recipe or a strawberry shortcake cake recipe, what about making these berry-flavored jigglers? This is one of the most easy gelatin recipes of all to make and they are guaranteed to come out fine and taste delicious.
