1 9x13-inch pan


  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package white cake mix

  • 1 cup water

  • 3 large egg whites

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • 1 ½ cups boiling water

  • 1 (6 ounce) package strawberry flavored Jell-O®

  • 16 fluid ounces strawberry flavored carbonated beverage


  • 1 ½ cups milk

  • 1 (5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix

  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  2. Beat together cake mix, water, egg whites, and oil in a large bowl with an electric mixer on low speed until moistened, about 30 seconds. Increase speed to medium and continue beating until well combined, about 2 minutes. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 23 to 28 minutes.

  4. Remove cake from the oven. Poke holes in cake with a wooden skewer or toothpick.

  5. Combine boiling water and strawberry gelatin in a medium bowl; stir until dissolved, then cool slightly. Stir in soda. Pour slowly over cake, allowing it to soak in. Refrigerate until cake is cool.

  6. Make frosting: Combine milk and pudding mix in a medium bowl; beat until well blended and thickened. Fold in thawed whipped topping until combined.

  7. Spread frosting over cooled cake. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
