    Kool-Aid Cake

    Ok, it might sound a bit weird, but kool-aid actually makes cakes taste better.

    List of Ingredients

    1/4 cup of your favorite flavor kool-aid powder
    1 box of your cake mix- yellow cake works best in most cases


    What you'll do is mix the kool-aid powder with whatever amount of water the cake recipe calls for. That's it. If your cake calls for a cup of water, then mix the powder into that cup of water and then add it to the batter.

    The kool-aid tropical fruit flavors go best with the yellow cake and frosted with vanilla frosting.

    You can even make a black forest cake. Just use your favorite chocolate cake mix and add in the cherry kool-aid mix.

    The cake mix, once finished, will come out a little lighter than the color of the batter. So it's even fun for kids' birthday parties. You know how it is, when the birthday kid wants his/her cake to be a specific color, like blue, pink or even green. Well, now you've found your way out of that bind : )

    Kool-aid comes in so many flavors, so it's kind of hard to get bored of this kind of cake.

    These cakes are a bit richer and definitely more moist than if you would've prepared them without the kool-aid. And yeah, it's got a bit more sugar in it, but hey, the amount of kool-aid you put into the cake is the same that would go into two 8 oz drinks, so you're really not loading the cake with sugar.
