Tips For How To Make A Rainbow Poke Cake

• You don’t have to use white cake mix. Yellow or vanilla will give the best result but the white color looks so beautiful with the colored jello.

• It is important to allow this cake to chill the entire 2 hours to set. The bottom is the most important part to allow to settle and will take the full 2 hours. Otherwise you will wind up with a soggy bottom cake.

• Your readers can also use a straw, swirl a toothpick or use anything else to poke holes.

• Do not use all the jello! Fill each hole with about a Tablespoon of preferred color, alternating colors as desired.

How to Store the Rainbow Poke Cake

Storing the Rainbow Poke Cake is simple. Slice it into individual servings, wrap each slice of cake in plastic wrap, and then place the slices in a large food container. Put the food container in the fridge to keep your cake fresher for even longer. The cake should remain fresh for up to three days.

If you want to keep the cake for more than three days, put the wrapped slices in your freezer. When kept in the freezer, the cake stays good for six months!

What to Add to Your Rainbow Poke Cake

Add extra toppings to your cake to make it even more enjoyable. After applying the Cool Whip to the top of your Rainbow Poke Cake, you might want to add some sliced strawberries to the top. If strawberries are not your favorite, you can add other types of fruit to the top of the cake, such as blueberries and raspberries.

You can also add different types of sprinkles to your colorful cake, such as nonpareils, sugar pearls, and jimmies.
