  • Combine cake mix, 1 cup water, eggs, vegetable oil, lemon zest, and juice in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until moistened. Increase speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 21 to 26 minutes.

  • Bring 1 cup water to a boil. Pour in strawberry gelatin mix and stir until dissolved. Mix in 1/4 cup cold water.

  • Use a fork to poke holes all over the cake. Pour gelatin mixture all over the cake. Refrigerate until completely cool, at least 1 hour.

  • Combine lemon pudding mix and milk until slightly thickened. Fold in whipped topping. Top cake with the pudding mixture. Keep refrigerated.
