Easy strawberry jello poke cake made with white cake mix, strawberry gelatin, and topped with whipped topping & fresh strawberries!
Since I uploaded my strawberry shortcake cheesecake recipe, so many of you have been asking me to upload more strawberry recipes. At first I was hesitant, because I can’t eat strawberries due to food allergies. However, I shouldn’t punish y’all because of my allergy right?! LOL. Anywho, in this post I’m going to share a super easy strawberry jello poke cake that you all can enjoy!
This cake recipe is semi homemade, since we will be using white cake mix. You can use whatever brand you’d like, just make sure that you have the ingredients on the back of the box as well.
The cake is topped off with creamy whipped topping, and fresh strawberries. If you’re allergic to strawberries, you can skip out on the fresh strawberries! Also be sure to use a gelatin with artificial flavoring instead of real strawberry flavoring if you’re allergic to strawberries.
This cake can easily be turned into a different flavor, such as an Orange Jello Cake, or a Hawaiian Poke Cake. You’d like to see those variations, leave me a comment down below.
