Patriotic Bundt Cake

The other day I posted a delicious cake that would be great for the 4th of July, a Red, White, and Blue Poke  Cake.  I decided to make another delicious 4th of July cake, because you can never have enough cake.  I have been slightly obsessed with making bundt cakes lately, because I love how easy they are and I really like the way they look.  Plus I think the frosting or glaze on the top looks so pretty.  Due to this I decided to make a Patriotic Bundt Cake, with red, white, and blue colors.
This Bundt cake is made using Strawberry and Berry Blue Jello to flavor the red and blue layers.  I loved the taste of the different flavors together, the cake was so delicious!  My favorite part though, was the look of the cake, I loved how all the layers swirled together.
This cake tastes just as good as it looks.  I made the cake using a red, white, and blue layer.  With the second layer, the red layer, I did not completely cover the bottom layer and that created the great swirl effect.  The frosting was also colored with the Strawberry and Berry Blue Jello.  I loved the strawberry and blueberry flavors of this cake.  This is a great cake for summer and is so festive for the 4th of July.  I hope that you make this cake for your celebration!
Patriotic Bundt Cake

Patriotic Bundt Cake


  • 1 box (15.25 ounces) white cake mix + ingredients on box
  • 1 box (3 ounces) Strawberry Jello, dry
  • 1 box (3 ounces) Berry Blue Jello, dry
  • 1 container white frosting


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Make the cake batter according to the directions on the box. Then pour 1/3 of the cake batter into a greased bundt pan. Then split the remaining cake batter in half, pouring half into another bowl.
  3. Reserve two tablespoons of Strawberry Jello mix and mix the remaining Strawberry Jello mix into one bowl of the cake batter until combined. Then pour the strawberry cake batter on top of the white layer. (If you want to make a swirl pattern, pour the red layer more in the center of the bundt pan).
  4. Reserve two tablespoons of Berry Blue Jello mix and mix the remaining Jello into the remaining 1/3 of cake batter until combined. Pour the blue cake batter on top of the red and white layers, making sure to cover both layers.
  5. Bake the cake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool for 20 minutes then invert the cake onto a plate and allow to completely cool.
  6. Once the cake is completely cooled, frost the bundt cake. Microwave the frosting for 15-30 seconds or until a little bit melted. Then split the frosting into thirds. Stir one tablespoon of the reserved strawberry jello into 1/3 of the frosting. Stir one tablespoon of the reserved berry blue jello into 1/3 of the frosting. Leave the other 1/3 of frosting white. Spoon each 1/3 of frosting into a small ziploc bag and cut the corner off with scissors. Then drizzle the frosting onto the bundt cake, alternating the red, white, and blue colors.

    Do you put the dry Jell-o mix into the cake batter and whisk it together before placing it in the bundt pan?

    • Yes that is how you do it, you use the dry Jello mix and just mix it into the batter. Let me know if you have any more questions.

      Thank You! I will definitely be trying this out this weekend as a test trial for our BIG fourth of July celebration.

  10. This looks amazing. I might have to make this for our festivities this year! I’ll be featuring it on my blog tomorrow!

    Thanks for linking up!

  11. I saw this on a 4th of July roundup and just had to pin it. I hope you’ll share your best post of the week on my Friday Flash Blog Linky Party going on ALL weekend at The Jenny Evolution.


  12. Made this for a party and it was delicious! May have to add a bit of red food coloring to the icing because that one turned pink 🙂 Everyone else named it the Dr Seuss cake. Oh well, it tasted great! Thanks so much.

    • I’m glad that everyone liked the cake! The red icing was a little light, so if you want to make it a little darker you could try adding more Jello or add some red food coloring. You could do the same with the blue icing.

    I’m so sad. The cake was looking and smelling so good and then when it came time to turn it out of the pan, it stuck. :'(

    • I’m so sorry! While it might not look perfect, it should still taste great. For next time make sure that you spray the bundt pan and make sure that you flip it after 20 minutes. Have a great 4th of July!
