Strawberries and Cream Bundt Cake using Jell-O, the possibilities are endless

Strawberries and Cream Bundt Cake using Jell-O, the possibilities are endless

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It’s the next holiday, well, the next holiday that involves food. With everyone trying to keep New Year’s resolutions, I have to have something to look forward to. And I bake on whims. I’ve been known to make Christmas cookies in July because it’s what I feel like making.

So when I’m walking through Kroger to get to the chicken breasts that are on sale, it hits me. This cake, I have to make it. I go get my 3 packages of chicken (one for dinner and 2 for the freezer), 5 boxes of Special K (on sale and the kids love the one with the berries) and 2 boxes of white cake mix (luckily, it was on sale too.)

This isn’t my first dance with JELL-O and cake. I made these Jello Swirled Cupcakes last year for my daughter’s class. The kids gobbled them up and the teacher’s enjoyed them too. It was a no brainer for this cake. The only hard part was which flavor? Cherry,Β watermelon, raspberry, Strawberry? It had to be strawberry for Valentine’s.

I finish up my errands and head back home. Β I had the cake in the oven 15 minutes later.

This cake had to go immediately to hubby’s work. It couldn’t stay in the house, I just wouldn’t be able to stop at one slice.

Strawberries and Cream Bundt Cake using JELL-O


  • 2 boxes white cake mix (15.25 ounce)
  • ingredients called for on box
  • 1 box strawberry JELL-O mix (3 ounce)
  • 1 can white frosting


  1. Spray a bundt pan well with cooking spray. Prepare cake mix according to box directions.
  2. Pour one third to one half of batter into bundt pan. Reserve 1 tablespoon JELL-O mix for frosting and add remaining mix to remaining cake batter. Stir just till well blended. Spoon batter into bundt pan over top of your white batter. Do not fill bundt pan past 2/3 full. Place any remaining batter in paper lined muffin tin for cupcakes. Bake cake for 45-55 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. (cupcakes for 19-22 minutes) Test for doneness using a toothpick. Remove from oven and let cake cool in pan for 20 minutes before inverting onto plate to cool completely.
  3. You don't need the whole can of frosting for the cake so ice cup cakes first then place remaining frosting in a small saucepan. Heat on low, stirring occasionally just until frosting starts to turn melt, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. You're looking for a smooth flow off the spoon. Place half of the melted frosting in a plastic bag. Add the reserved 1 tablespoon JELL-O mix to the remaining frosting, stir well. Place your JELL-O frosting in a separate plastic bag. With scissors, cut one corner off of each bag. You want the hole as small as possible. Drizzle melted frosting over cake, alternating colors.

Note-you can make this with just one box of cake mix but your cake will be short. I liked the taller (fuller) cake.

And the cupcakes were good too.

  27. The cake looks very pretty with all that drizziling of white and pink colour.

  28. This cake is so beautiful!! I am sure it tastes delicious. πŸ™‚

  29. Okay, now I’m going to try this – the way you decorated it is really what did me in. I thought it was melted chocolates when I looked at it.

    I love putting frosting in the microwave for 30 seconds and dipping cupcakes. Gives them a smooth surface and cuts way down on the frosting, which I like.

    Cute, cute, cute!! Love it!

    • Thanks Tammy, just don’t over melt your frosting, you want to have some texture when you drizzle! And you’re so right about cutting down on the frosting. I din’t even use half a can.

  30. It’s even prettier on the inside than on the outside. Love it! Pinning now!

  31. This is wonderful! I love how it looks. GREAT JOB!!!

  32. Wow, this is amazing!! Pink is my all time favorite color, which makes this even better!! Following you from the TT&J link party. Totally just pinned this!

  34. Can’t believe Valentine’s is almost here. These are perfect for Love Day πŸ™‚ Anything with strawberries and cream – spells romance all the way, hehe. My 2 young daughters saw your cake photos and they went ga-ga over it!

  35. Oh my goodness, Joan. This cake is beautiful! I’d love to take a big hunk of it off of your hands. πŸ™‚

  52. Made this tonight! Can’t wait to share it at our church dinner meal tomorrow!

  53. Hello πŸ™‚ Your cake looks amazing and I’m sure it is! I’ve been wanting to make this cake but I had a question. You said that one box is enough but then mention in your note that the cake will be short. What will give it a more fuller look?

  54. The Mandatory Mooch says:

    Joan, I have picked some of my favorite pink desserts to feature tomorrow (Friday, March 1st) in a “10 Amazing Pink Desserts” post. This is one of them. Come see the post and spread the word!! Thanks, Nichi

  55. Thought this would be a cute dessert for a gender reveal party for my niece – with both pink and blue since we won’t know which way to go until the party πŸ™‚

  56. I so love your jello recipes. It is known as jelly here in Aust. Keep up the good work

  57. I am not sure about the jello do you just add the jello power or do you make the jello like it said on the box and then add it to the cake Thank you

  58. This cake is so great … Unfortunately,I don’t think our stores in Greece sell the ingredients the recipe requires…Can you help me?Please I want to make it on Valentine’s Day!

  59. I didn’t realize that a bundt cake would need 2 cake mixes.. I will be trying this for valentines day!

  60. I got this link from a Pinterest pin! OMG.. this is one of the best cakes. I have never used Jello in my cake batter… loved it and even the frosting looked fabulous. This was a big hit! Thank you so much this is sure going in the LOVE’s of my recipe box!

  61. I just took this cake out of the oven. I’m waiting for it to cool now. I’m making it for my daughters 27 birthday. I used two boxes of cake mix and it all went in my bundt pan. Nothing left for cupcakes. I must have a large pan. Hope mine turns out as pretty as yours. My daughter is better at baking sweets than me,but hey,who makes their own birthday cake

  62. I’m going to make this for Easter.

  63. If you use two boxes of cake mix do you just add ingredients for one box are do you double it for two? Thanks!! Looks so good

  64. I love this recipe! bundt cakes are my favorite desert to serve with a cup of coffee after dinner.
