I needed a special dessert for when my friend Rose was here, so I decided to resurrect the Jello Poke Cake, especially since there are so many new flavor combinations to try.
My choice was a Chocolate Fudge box cake mix, and poked in raspberry jello. For the frosting (imho the BEST PART) I used Cheesecake instant pudding and Cool Whip, mixed together and spread in a thick layer over the cooled jelled cake. Scrumptious.
But wait! There are tons of other jello flavors, and pudding flavors to make sensational combos.
Imagine for the fall, pumpkin cake with orange jello and pumpkin spice/Cool Whip frosting
Or for Cinco de Mayo Lemon cake with margarita jello and coconut/Cool Whip frosting.
The plain ol' recipe is here and to make the frosting, just mix the instant pudding as directed on the box and fold into 8 oz of Cool Whip. Spread on cooled cake.
What combo sounds good to you?
