Easter Peeps Poke Cake


  • 1 - 15.25 ounce box white cake mix + ingredients listed back of the box
  • 2 - 3 ounce packages of cheesecake instant pudding
  • 2 ¾ cups of milk, divided
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 8 ounces whipped topping
  • pink and green gel food coloring
  • green sprinkles, for topping
  • peeps marshmallows, for topping
  • Easter peanut M&Ms, for topping


  1. Cake:
  2. Prepare the white cake mix and bake according to package directions. Remove from oven and cool.
  3. Once the cake has cooled use the thin end of a wooden spoon to poke holes throughout the cake.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together one package of the cheesecake pudding mix with 2 cups of milk. Whisk in 6-7 drops of pink food coloring, adding more if necessary, to get your desired shade of pink.
  5. Quickly pour the pudding mixture into the holes you poked in your cake, and smooth out over the top of the cake.
  6. Move the cake to the refrigerator to chill for 2-4 hours, so the pudding can set.
  7. Frosting:
  8. In a large mixing bowl whisk together one package of cheesecake pudding, ¾ cup of milk and powdered sugar until smooth.
  9. Fold in cool whip, stirring until everything is well combined.
  10. Add 4-5 drops of green food coloring, and stir until combined and there are no more white streaks. Add more food coloring, if needed, to get to your desired shade of green.
  11. Frost the top of the cake, and then top with green sprinkles, Peeps and Easter M&Ms.
