Rainbow Poke Cake


The Jell-O adds a fruity flavor to the cake, which might trick you into believing this is semi-healthy. Sorry to report it isn't, but it sure does taste good!

Step 1

Prepare the vanilla cake according to the package's instructions, then let it cool for at least 20 minutes before poking the top of the entire cake with the handle of a wooden spoon.

Pour the cherry Jell-O mix into one bowl, and the blue raspberry Jell-O mix into another bowl. Add a cup of boiling water to each bowl and whisk until the Jell-O powder has dissolved. Stir a cup of cold water into each bowl.

Immediately pour both flavors of Jell-O onto the cake, filling alternate holes and areas of the cake to create a spotted or tie-dye effect. Refrigerate for two hours.

Top the cake with a layer of whipped topping and cover with sprinkles.
