1 cup very hot water
1 box (4-serving size) Jell-O™ raspberry-flavored gelatin
1 box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ white cake mix
1/2 cup frozen (thawed) lemonade concentrate
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
4 egg whites
1 container Betty Crocker™ Whipped vanilla frosting
1 cup Cool Whip™ frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries, if desired

Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan).
Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with baking spray with flour.
Mix hot water and gelatin until gelatin is completely dissolved. Cool slightly.
Beat cake mix, 1/4 cup of the gelatin mixture, 1/4 cup of the lemonade concentrate, the water, oil and egg whites with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes. Pour into pan.

Cool completely, about 1 hour.

Microwave 1 tablespoon gelatin mixture uncovered on High 10 seconds to liquefy. Place small drops of gelatin mixture over frosting; with spoon or toothpick, swirl gelatin into frosting.
Garnish each piece with raspberries and lemon peel strips.
