Ladies Who Launch

I slept last night, and made no major mistakes yesterday.  So, gold star for me.

Today is the day we celebrate our freedom by making Jello Poke Cake.  Below is a recipe, adapted for patriotism.

Patriotic cake

Patriotic Poke Cake

White cake — that’s it, just a white cake. Any old white cake. Being, a cake that’s white.
Another white cake— see above.
1 large box of Strawberry Jello [tm] — Make sure it’s large.
I large box of blue jello — make sure it’s blue.
4 cups water
Vanilla pudding
Milk
Cool Whip

Make a white cake, according to the directions on the box. Because, I guess, that’s the only way to make a white cake. Then, make another one.
While the cake is still hot, poke holes in it with the handle of a wooden spoon (no other utensil will work for these holes, do NOT fool around!)
Do it again with the other one.
Dissolve Jello in 2 cups boiling water (each), and pour over cake. Leave no part of the cake uncovered. The cake should no longer be white at the end of this procedure.
Pour red jello over one cake, and blue over the other.
Let the cake cool while you make vanilla pudding. Somehow.
There’s probably a box or something, like with the cake.
Maybe you’ll need more pudding. Another box or something.

Okay, here’s the best part– get ready–

COVER THE ENTIRE CAKE WITH PUDDING
COVER THE OTHER ENTIRE CAKE WITH PUDDING

Stack cakes on top of each other.

And the second best part:

COVER IT ALL WITH COOL WHIP.

Et voila.

I got this from Julia Child.
