Holiday Poke Cake

Adapted from

  • Batter:
  • 18 1/4 ozs white cake mix
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 c water, cold
  • 1/2 c egg whites, slightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Filling:
  • 2 c water, boiling
  • 3 ozs strawberry gelatin powder
  • 3 ozs lime gelatin powder
  • 4 c Dream Whip whipped topping mix, prepared
Preheat oven to 350. Prepare two 9" round cake pans with cooking spray and flour; set aside. To prepare batter, combine cake mix and baking powder in a mixing bowl. In another mixing bowl, combine water, egg whites, oil, and vanilla extract. Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients just until moistened. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Place cake layers, top sides up, in two clean cake pans. Pierce cake with large fork at half inch intervals. To prepare filling, stir one cup of the boiling water into each flavor of gelatin powder in separate bowls two minutes, or until dissolved. Carefully pour red gelatin over one cake layer and lime gelatin over second cake layer. Any remaining gelatin, pour into individual molds. Chill until firm. Meanwhile, refrigerate cakes for three hours. Dip one cake pan in warm water 10 seconds; unmold onto serving plate. Spread with one cup of the whipped topping. Unmold second cake layer; carefully place on first layer. Frost top and sides of cake with remaining topping. Refrigerate one hour or until ready to serve. Decorate as desired.
