Raspberry Jello Cake

When the day is hot and humid, we may need something colder for dessert. Ice cream or sundae can be perfect, but surely, you may not want to gobble all those cholesterol and sugar during most of the days of summer. Having a lighter dessert can be the best way to cap a sumptuous dinner.

A Raspberry Jello Cake is an excellent option. Besides giving you the chill, it is very delectable, too. It is an easy-to-prepare cake and can be perfect for breakfast, lunch, or supper on a hot day.
