Pokey, pokey!

We celebrated one of my auntie’s birthdays earlier this month. I was researching dessert ideas and I came across a poke cake. I was intrigued and tried it out!

Of course, I modified the recipe, as I always do, to make it my own!

You can basically use any type of box cake mix. I choose Rainbow Chip and poke holes in them after the cake cooled.

See the rainbow chips in the poked holes? Awesome!

Then, I mixed strawberry Jell-O, but instead of mixing the gelatin mix with regular water, I used strawberry sparkling water.

Hi Dave! He’s my auntie’s fave minion!! Haha!

…And TA-DA!!!! I poured the mix over the cake and refrigerated it overnight.

Yummy!

We really enjoy it! The sweetness was just right! Time to make more poke cakes with different Jell-Os and cake mixes! I’m excited!

Have a great week!
