Rhubarb upside-down cake

This came from the little old ladies sitting at the table next to me one day last week.  The "Hostess" of the coffee party made this wonderful cake for her card club.  But it was so rich that she had extra. So she had to plan the coffee party to get rid of the rest of the cake.  After the coffee party, they went out for supper together. ??  Ah ha!  They have learned the secret of life, "Eat your dessert first!" 

I heard this story 2-3 times along with the recipe so I can't imagine how many times the two guests had heard it.  But they didn't seem to mind, because they kept asking questions to which the outcome was the story repeated all over again.  LOL
 Very lightly spray the bottom of your pan.

Pick, De-green and wash your rhubarb.
(Always pick rhubarb by pulling it straight out.  Don't just break it.)

Chop 5 cups of rhubarb
(I like to make sure the bottom of the pan is double thick.)

Measure 1 Cup of Sugar

Sprinkle sugar evenly over rhubarb

Sprinkle on box of Strawberry Jell-O over the top
(I used sugar free)

Add two cups of miniature marshmallows

Mix a cake mix according to the box.
(I wanted to make a chocolate cake but Dale likes Vanilla better.)

Pour the cake mix evenly across the mixture in the pan.

Cook until golden brown.

I confess...It smelled so good that 1/2 an hour out of the oven we had to have a piece.
(You can serve cake up or cake down.)

Refrigerate until cool.  This is what it should really look like if you are patient.
Again, you can serve it cake up or cake down. 

Top with cool whip or whipped cream
It is VERY good and the women were right, very rich.  This is without a doubt a party pleaser.  So here is your list:
5 cups rhubarb
1 cup sugar
1 box Strawberry Jell-O
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 box cake mix
Cool whip or whipping cream

Enjoy :^)
