Jello Sheet (Poke Cake) Cake Frosting

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Mooselips

This is the original recipe for the Jell-o sheet cake frosting from the 1970's. I had to search Mom's recipes to find it as the new recipe just uses Cool Whip alone. The only change it to Cool Whip from dream whip to save a step. Everyone loves it.

This frosting is the best one to use with any flavor poke cake. Way better than just frosting with plain cool-whip.


  1. combine ingredients except the Cool Whip in a medium bowl and beat on low until well blended, about 1 minute.
  2. Fold in Cool Whip topping.
  3. Let stand for 5 minutes before frosting the jello cake.
  4. refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
