Poke Cake | Labor Day Dessert


Hello friends,

 

are you gearing up for this long Labor Day Weekend?  What are your plans, will you be heading to the parks, a pool party, or just chillaxin at home?  I will be doing a little grilling using the Yoshi Grill Mats, cleaning out a few closets and watching movies.

This holiday is going to be bittersweet because it’s the first one without Malik and also because it’s the last official one of the summer. I keep telling myself, “this too shall pass!”

A few weeks ago, I decided to make a Poke Cake after seeing a recipe for one online.

Hubby was a little skeptical because he had never heard of pouring jello over a cake, thinking it would be too soggy so in his mind he didn’t like it even before tasting it. Poke Cake Recipe

Using Duncan Hines cake mix and following the box directions I allowed the cake to cool before poking in the holes.

While the cake cooled, I made the gelatin, using Jolly Rancher Blue Raspberry for a holiday “red white and blue” theme.

Using a wooden skewer I poked random holes into the cake, stopping half way through then poured the liquid gelatin across the top.

The pan was then placed in the refrigerator for approximately three hours to set.  After removing the cake from the pan it was frosted and topped with canned strawberries.

Have you ever made a Poke Cake?  If so, what jello and toppings did you use?
