Cake Mix

  • 1 box french vanilla cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs


  • 1 -3oz. package blue raspberry jello
  • 1 -3oz. package raspberry jello
  • 2 cups boiling water

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 1 -8oz. block of cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 -8oz tub of cool whip, thawed
  • patriotic sprinkles



  • Preheat oven according to cake mix directions.
  • Prepare cake according box directions. I used a Betty Crocker cake mix. This called for 1 cup water, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, and 3 eggs.
  • Pour cake mix in a greased 9x13 cake pan and bake according to box directions.
  • Once cake has baked, remove from the oven and let it cool completely.
  • With the back of a wooden spoon or a medicine dropper, poke holes into cake 3/4 of the way down.


  • In two microwave safe bowls, add 1 cup of water each and put them in the microwave for 2 minutes until they are boiling.
  • Add blue raspberry jello to one bowl of boiling water, and raspberry jello to the other bowl of boiling water. Stir to dissolve.
  • With a medicine dropper or a squeeze bottle, squirt hot red and blue jello into holes so that the colors will be striped.
  • Cover and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • In a medium size mixing bowl add softened cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar and mix well with a hand mixer. Fold in thawed cool whip until fully combined.
  • Spread frosting evenly over cake and top with patriotic sprinkles. Enjoy!
  • Cake should be left in the fridge until ready to eat.
