  • 1 box your favorite white cake mix (plus ingredients)
  • 1 box strawberry Jello mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 container cool whip, thawed
  • 5-10 sliced strawberries


  1. Make your cake per the box instructions in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Once done (stick a toothpick in the middle and it should come out clean), take the cake out of the oven and let it cool for 30 minutes.
  2. Using the back of a wooden spoon, poke holes all over the cake.
  3. Boil water. Mix together the Jello powder and boiling water until the Jello dissolves. Carefully pour the mixture evenly over the top of the holes in the cooled cake. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for a couple of hours.
  4. When ready to serve, spread our homemade whipped cream or cool whip over the top of the cake. Cut into pieces and serve with sliced strawberries.
