Strawberry Jell-O Poke Cake

Pin It
Strawberry Jell-O Poke Cake is a dessert my mom use to make when we were kids.
My brother's and I loved it!
It's such a light and refreshing cake and easy too since it's made from a boxed cake mix.

For Easter I decided to take a trip down memory lane and make Strawberry Jell-O Poke
Cake for our family get together.
Chilled whipped cream pudding frosting combined with fluffy white cake tastes so good
on a warm spring day!
Heck, who am I kidding - it tastes good any day!

A couple of years ago I made poke cake into cupcakes and they were really cute
The jell-o part is a little tricky when making cupcakes, but you can see how I did it here.

Anyway, if you've never tried Jell-O Poke Cake you should give this recipe a try sometime.
I think you'll like it.

I sent some leftovers home with my brother and took the rest to work the next day.
I'm a nice like that :)
