Red White and Blue Poke Cake

This Red White and Blue Poke Cake is so easy and fun to make and perfect for Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day holiday. Whatever the celebration is, this Jello-O Poke cake will be the perfect dessert on your menu that day.

A Poke cake is one of the easiest cake to make. It is made with a white cake mix and Jell-O. The Jell-O adds some colors to a plain white sheet cake. Tops off with some whipped topping or even a cream cheese topping (like what I did for this recipe) and some fruits.

Poke Cakes

Whenever the holidays comes around, I have always seen these vibrant poke cakes posted on my social media timeline. So I said why not give it a try for this past 4th of July holiday.

I was so shock how easy it was and fun to make with the kids. Yes invite the kids to have some fun with you in the kitchen.

Plus, the cream cheese topping with the fruits on top was delicious. I think that was one of the best part of it besides the beautiful red and blue jello colors embedded among the white cake.

It was a big hit for this year celebration.

If you are not a big fan of the cream cheese topping, then just use the whipped topping with the fruits. However, if you don’t want fruits on top, then some red, white and blue jimmies edible sprinkles can also give you that patriotic look too.

Also, I didn’t use up all the Jell-O mixtures. So I put the remainder in the refrigerator for the kids to eat later on. Yep another dessert for the kids.
