  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 box French vanilla pudding mix
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 container of Cool Whip
  • pink, purple, and green food coloring
  • sprinkles


  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a 9x13 baking dish.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, water, and oil and whisk to combine. Divide batter evenly between 3 bowls. Add a few drops of each food coloring into the different bowls to end up with pink batter, purple batter, and green batter.
  • Using a spoon, drop spoonfuls of each colored batter around the baking dish being sure to alternate colors throughout making sure not to mix the colors too heavily.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  • While the cake cools, combine the pudding mix and milk and whisk to combine until it begins to set, about 5 minutes.
  • Using the blunt end of a wooden spoon, poke holes in the cake about an inch apart. Pour the pudding over the top of the cake, smoothing out with a spatula.
  • Cover the cake with Cool Whip and then sprinkles and refrigerate until ready to serve.
