We love ice box cakes when the weather is warm outside. Poke cakes are cool and refreshing and everyone loves them. We had a small get together on May21, 2016 and it happened to be Armed Forces Day so A simple strawberry poke cake turned into a patriotic dessert. I always thought a white chocolate pudding would be great with a strawberry cake and it was amazing . The Cream cheese topping is fluffy and rich. The fruit you could make as a flag or how ever you want. This is a great dessert for any summer function!1

How to Make Red White and Blue Strawberry Cream Poke Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 and sift cake mix and set aside
  • 2Mix eggs, oil , sour cream and strawberry extract
  • 3Slowly add cake mix to wet ingredients
  • 4Spray 9x13 baking dish with Baker's Joy or something similar
  • 5Pour mixed cake into prepared baking dish ( I like to use a clear dish so you can see the layers)
  • 6Bake around 30 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean
  • 7Allow cake to slightly cool and poke randomly with a straw. I like bigger holes so all the to pudding gets into the cake.
  • 8Mix the pudding milk and sweetened condensed milk and spread on the poked cake
  • 9Cream together the cream cheese and condensed milk then fold in whipped topping. Then beat until everything is smooth
  • 10Spread whipped topping on top of the pudding mixture
  • 11Place in the ice box for 2-3 hours
  • 12Top with fresh blueberries and sliced strawberries. Either serve or cover and put back in the ice box. I don't like to place the fruit on top more the 2-3 hours before serving . Keep cold and store leftovers in fridge.
