  • 1 16.25 oz box white cake mix (prepare with ingredients on box)
  • 1 box .3 oz strawberry jello mix sugar-free
  • 1 ox box instant vanilla pudding mix sugar free
  • 1 container 8 oz cool whip
  • 1 1/2 c. water
  • 2 c. milk


  • Prepare your cake as it calls for on the box. When the cake is done baking poke holes in the cake with a the handle end of a wooden spoon. Place in the fridge to chill for 3-4 hours.
  • Prepare Jell-O with 1 c. boiling water and 1/2 c. cold water. Mix together until jello mix is dissolved. Pour over the cake. This will seem like a lot of liquid but the cake will absorb it and it won’t become mush.
  • Place the cake in the fridge while you prepare the vanilla pudding mixture. Mix the vanilla pudding with 2 c. milk. Let it sit until soft set. Smooth over the top of your cake. Top with the cool whip.
