  • Measuring cups
  • mixing bowls
  • Baking dish
  • Ziploc bag
  • Rolling Pin
  • Whisk
  • Spoon
  • Knife
  • Pint-sized mason jars or smaller mason jar


  • 15.25 ounces Betty Crocker White Cake Mix plus ingredients stated on box: eggs, oil, water
  • 6-8 cups strawberries sliced
  • 6 ounces Jell-O brand cheesecake pudding plus ingredients stated on box: 2 cups of cold milk per box
  • 8 ounces Honeymaid graham crackers crushed
  • Whipped cream for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350 F and spray the bottom of a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, prepare the cake mix as directed on box with the eggs, oil, and water. Mix until evenly combined and there are no more lumps.
  • Pour the batter into the baking pan and bake as directed on package, until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Once it is done baking, remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes or longer. If you want a cooler and firmer cake (easier to cut into squares), you can put it in the fridge to chill some more after it has cooled on the rack for a bit.
  • Prepare the pudding as per package instructions with cold milk. Mix until thickened and then set aside.
  • Wash and slice the strawberries and set aside.
  • Add graham crackers to a large ziploc bag and use a rolling pin to crush it. Then set aside.
  • Cut the cooled cake into small squares and set aside.
  • Now it’s time to assemble the mason jars. Add the cake, strawberry slices, cheesecake pudding, graham crackers, and layer it. Top with more strawberry slices and some whipped cream. Serve and enjoy!


Don’t add whipped cream (aerosol spray cans) until ready to serve as they “melt” down fast. You can also make a stabilized whipped cream instead which will hold its shape longer.
