Strawberries and Cream Poke Cake Ingredients:
Cake:
1 (15.25 oz) boxed white cake mix
1 cup boiling water
1 (3 oz) box strawberry flavored Jell-o
1/2 cup cold water

Frosting:
1 (8 oz) tub Cool-Whip non-dairy whipped topping
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Topping:
1 pound strawberries, diced

Directions:
Make cake as directed on the back of the box for a 9×13″ pan.   Let the cake cool for 20 minutes and “poke” the cake with a large fork (I space my pokes about 1/2″ apart and do it until the entire surface of the cake is covered).   Mix together the boiling water and Jell-o until the Jell-o is completely dissolved. Pour in the cold water and mix well then pour over the cake.  Cover the cake with plastic wrap and refrigerate for three hours.   Combine the Cool-Whip, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla and beat until smooth.  Spread on top of cake.   Top with strawberries and keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
