Cool Kid Summer Food

Kool-Aid Cake
1 box cake mix of your choice
1 box powdered sugar
1 pack kool-aid, your choice
1 carton or can of milk

Make the cake according to directions on the box.  Mix half a box of powdered sugar and about half a pack of Kool-Aid.  You can mix the whole pack of Kool-Aid to fit your taste.  Mix well.  Stir in the milk a little at a time to get the thickness you desire.  After cake cools before putting on the icing put a few holes in the cake so as to let some of the icing soak in the cake.

1 1/3 cups water
