Jello Poke Cake


  • 1 (18.25–ounce) white or yellow cake mix
  • 1 (3–ounce) package jello, any flavor you like
  • 1 (12-ounce) container nondairy whipped topping
  • Berries or sprinkle for decoration, if desired


  1. Mix and bake cake according to package directions; cool completely.
  2. Poke holes in top of the cake with a regular table fork. Cover the entire surface of the cake with holes, but make them as close together or far apart as you want.
  3. Dissolve gelatin according to package directions and pour mixture very slowly over top of cake. Spoon the gelatin by tablespoons, if needed, to make sure all holes are completely filled.
  4. Cover cake with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 6 hours, or until gelatin is completely set.
  5. Spread top of cake with whipped topping; garnish with berries or sprinkles, if desired. Cut into squares and serve.
