Recipe tips:

  • You'll want the holes to be fairly big and poked down to the bottom of the cake so that the pudding has plenty of room to fill the holes.
  • Make sure to pour the pudding over the cake right away. Once it sets, it will not fill the holes easily.

  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:

  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.
