The final recipe from my Mother's Day Feast post. I love this dessert (but then again I love most desserts!) but this one is wonderful for the warm summer days coming up. It's cold and refreshing, easy to make and everyone will love the pretty colors running thru the slices.
Jello Poke Cake
2 - 4oz boxes of Jello (any flavor, but reds, greens, & blues look the best)
1 - Tub of Cool Whip Topping
1 - Box of Vanilla Pudding Mix
*Plus whatever your cake mix box calls for to make it!*
Bake your cake according to the box instructions.
***If you're planning on turning over the cake out of it's pan, be sure to oil & flour the pan first!***
You can make it in 8 or 9in. round pans, a 13x9 rectangle, cupcakes, anything you'd like.
Once cake is finished, let it cool for 10-20minutes in the pan it was baked in.
While the cake is cooling, mix up the Jello according to the instructions on the box.
After the cake has cooled down a bit, poke holes all over cake using a fork. Pour the jello over the cake letting it fill in the holes.
Cover the cake and place in the fridge for 2 hours to let the Jello set.
If you'd like, you can overturn the cake out of it's pan now.
Before serving, mix the pudding mix in with the tub of Cool Whip and frost the cake. I used a frosting piping bag with a star point to make it pretty but you can just spread it on like frosting.
And that's it! Simple as that. We used lemon jello which tasted great but didn't give it the fancy streaks thru the cake like a brighter color will. If you're feeling especially creative you can use two colors of jello for even more confetti fun!
