Tasty Thursday

It's time to start making all those luscious treats that get us all excited for Christmas! Today's recipe is taken from the New York Times Best-Seller, 101 Things to do With a Cake Mix by Stephanie Ashcraft. This is the perfect dessert to make and enjoy with your family this holiday season. 

Christmas-Rainbow Poke Cake

1 white cake mix
1 small box strawberry gelatin
1 small box lime gelatin
2 cups boiling water, divided
1/2 cup cold water, divided
1 container (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed

Prepare cake mix as directed on box. Pour batter into two 8- or 9-inch round pans and bake as directed; cool 10 minutes. Remove from pans; cool cakes completely and clean the pans.

Place cake layers, top sides up, back into the two clean pans. With a fork, poke holes at 1-inch intervals through both cakes.

Dissolve strawberry gelatin in 1 cup boiling water. Mix 1/4 cup cold water into gelatin. Spoon over one layer of cake in pan. Repeat with lime gelatin. Refrigerate 3–4 hours or overnight.

Dip one pan with cake into warm water for 10 seconds: invert cake onto a serving plate. Cover the cake with part of the whipped topping. Invert second layer of cake on top and then frost with remaining whipped topping. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
