Red, White and Blue Poke Cake



1 (15.25 oz) boxed white cake mix
1 cup boiling water
1 (3 oz) box strawberry flavored Jell-o
1/2 cup cold water

1 (8 oz) tub Cool-Whip whipped topping
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

1 pound strawberries, cut into triangles
2 cups blueberries (Depending on how big or small they are, the cup size will vary. I used 50 blueberries that were a mix of medium and large sizes)


Make cake as directed on the back of the box for a 9″×13″ pan.

Let the cake cool for 20 minutes and “poke” the cake with a large fork until the entire surface of the cake is covered.

Mix together the boiling water and Jell-o until the Jell-o is completely dissolved. Pour in the cold water and mix well then pour over the cake.

Cover the cake with plastic wrap and refrigerate for three hours.

Combine the Cool-Whip, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla and beat with a mixer until smooth. Spread on top of cake.

Top with strawberries and blueberries and keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
