Event Details

Looking for a cool cake to eat during the summertime? Look no further than our Take&Bake: Jell-O Cake program! 

Registrants will receive a FREE bag with (almost) all the supplies needed to make an 9x13 inch pan of Jell-O cake.  The ingredients provided are: white cake mix and Jell-O mix.  Participants will need to supply a 9x13 inch pan, 1/3 c oil, 3 eggs, one tub of Cool Whip and water. 

The bags will be available for pickup at Central Library's Pickup Window during curbside hours from May 4 - May 13

Registration is required to receive a kit. After registration, you will receive a confirmation email with the link and password to the Zoom program. This link is how we will get together to learn how to make Jell-o Cake. Easton, from Easton's Food Truck, and DMPL Librarian, Haley, will be showing step by step how to make this cool cake.

Library staff will monitor the chat and will pass those questions along from the chat. Disruptive or disrespectful comments in the chat may result in removal from the program.
