2 layer Poke cake

This cake is so delicious and one of my favorites! The nice thing about it is that it's a light dessert for those hot summer nights. Heres the Recipe:


2 baked 9-inch round white cake layers, cooled
2 cups boiling water
2 pkg. (4 serving size) JELL-O Brand Strawberry Flavor Gelatin
1 (8 ounce) tub COOL WHIP FREE Whipped Topping, thawed

Place both cake layers, top-sides up, in clean 9-inch round cake pans. Pierce layers evenly with large fork at 1/2-inch intervals.
Stir boiling water into dry gelatin mix in medium bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Pour evenly over cake layers. Refrigerate 3 hours.
Dip one of the cake pans in warm water 10 seconds; unmold onto serving plate. Spread with about 1 cup of the whipped topping. Unmold second cake layer; carefully place on first cake layer. Frost top and side of cake with remaining whipped topping. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until ready to serve. Decorate as desired. Store in refrigerator.

The best part is that you can use any flavor of gelatin you want! The original recipe used black cherry sugar free but I changed it to regular strawberry.
Have fun and get creative! :)
