Jello Poke Cake Recipe

Author Angie Holden

What You Will Need

  • 1 18.25 ounce package white cake mix, prepared to package instructions
  • 1 package 3 ounce package strawberry gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water for gelatin
  • 1 package 3 ounce package berry blue gelatin
  • 2 8-ounce packages cream cheese
  • ½ cup powdered sugar divided
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 8 ounces whipped topping thawed
  • 1 quart strawberries chopped
  • 2 cups blueberries


  • Bake a white cake in a 13x9 inch pan according to package instructions. Remove from oven and then allow to cool.
  • Using a fork, poke holes in the top of the cake.
  • Mix together the blue and red gelatin each with 1 cup of boiling water until dissolved, and then spoon each color gelatin over the cake, making sure to pour over the holes. The best way to do this is a row of blue, then a row of red and alternate so you get a colorful mix of red and blue in the cake. It's good to spoon over each row 2-3 times for good coverage.
  • Then mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar with 2 tablespoons of milk. Mix in the whipped topping.
  • Spread cream cheese mixture over the cake.
  • Top with rows of strawberries and blueberries.
  • Chill for 4 hours before serving.
