Directions:
Prepare cake per package directions for a 13 x 9 inch cake. While cake is baking, prepare jello per package directions but do not refrigerate.
While cake is still warm, poke fairly large holes in it. I use a meat fork. Poke lots of holes. Pour all but about 1 cup of the warm jello over warm cake; covering entire cake. Refrigerate cake. Refrigerate remaining jello. When jello is almost set (soft-set), beat Dream Whip with milk and vanilla per package directions. Beat with electric mixer until stiff. Beat in jello. Beat in fruit.
Pour over COMPLETELY cooled cake. Refrigerate until ready to eat.
