Red White and Blue Strawberry Cream Poke Cake

Debbie W


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


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and sift cake mix and set aside
  2. Mix eggs, oil , sour cream and strawberry extract
  3. Slowly add cake mix to wet ingredients
  4. Spray 9x13 baking dish with Baker's Joy or something similar
  5. Pour mixed cake into prepared baking dish ( I like to use a clear dish so you can see the layers)
  6. Bake around 30 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean
  7. Allow cake to slightly cool and poke randomly with a straw. I like bigger holes so all the to pudding gets into the cake.
  8. Mix the pudding milk and sweetened condensed milk and spread on the poked cake
  9. Cream together the cream cheese and condensed milk then fold in whipped topping. Then beat until everything is smooth
  10. Spread whipped topping on top of the pudding mixture
  11. Place in the ice box for 2-3 hours
  12. Top 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.
