Jello Shot Poke Cake "ADULTS ONLY"

Karla Everett


This cake is really good ..basically its a poke cake but done with Jello laced with liquor (Jello shots).

This cake is really neat when done with more than one color of Jello , It looks like a rainbow cake .

Don't eat too much or it can catch up to ya ...hahaha

Great for a adult gathering.

How to Make Jello Shot Poke Cake "ADULTS ONLY"


  1. Mix the Pkg. cake mix according to the box directions but cook it in a Bundt pan. 350° for 38-43 minutes. Cool.
  2. To make the Jello Shots mix the package of Jello with boiling water until all the Jello is dissolved ; add liquor of your choice.( I like vodka or rum )
  3. Remove the cake from the pan ; Wash and dry the pan and spray with veg. spray so the cake won't stick to the Bundt pan ; Put the cake back in the pan.
  4. Poke holes in a zig zag pattern around the cake , about 1" apart with the handle of a wooden spoon and Carefully pour the Jello in the holes.
  5. Place the cake in the refrigerator to set the Jello for about 3-4 hours. Invert onto a plater ; and serve :)
  6. I like to mix up 2 different flavors of Jello ( Don't mix the flavors of alcohol )and pour a different flavor in every other hole ; makes it prettier and more potent ...enjoy
