  • 3 oz strawberry jello mix (1 box)
  • 1 cup water
  • 8 oz cool whip (1 tub)
  • 1 ½ cups fresh strawberries (sliced)


  • Prepare your cake according to the box directions in a 13x9 casserole dish. Once cooked remove from oven and allow cool.
  • Once cooled use a wooden spoon to poke holes in the cake throughout the cake. Make sure to not go all the way to the pan bottom.

  • Cover and place cake in the fridge for 1-2 hours or until Jell-o is set.
  • Once Jell-o is set and you are ready to serve top the cake with the cool whip and sliced strawberries.
