Strawberry Flag Poke Cake
Since I have gotten a few comments on Our 4th of July Festivities, I thought I would include the recipe for my strawberry poke cake.
Bake a regular strawberry cake mix as directed. I added sliced strawberries to the mix as well. Allow to cool.
While the cake is cooling, prepare jello as directed.
Poke small holes into the cake. You can use a fork, a wooden skewer, a chop stick, or whatever you have handy.
Then pour slightly cooled Strawberry jello over the cake, allowing in to seep into the holes.
Since this was for July 4, I wanted to be extra festive.
I poked another set of holes in different places and poured Blue jello into those holes.
*if you are out of a particular kind of jello, plain works just as well with a pack of Kool-aid for color & flavor*
I bake the cake for another 10 minutes on 350. Then I put the cake into the fridge to cool.
After the cake cooled, I added cream cheese icing and topped with sliced strawberries and grapes, because my family doesn't like blueberries.
It sure was a hit. There wasn't a single piece left.
