Recipe: Poke Cake

I remember going to church potluck suppers, and little blue-haired lady that always brought this cake. It was made with yellow cake mix and red jello (probably cherry). Me and my sisters loved it, probably because it looked so lovely.

1 box of yellow or white cake mix
1 small box instant jello mix - any flavor
1 8-ounce whipped topping

Using a lasagna-type long pan (9x13), make and bake the cake according to the cake mix box directions. As it cools in the pan, use a spoon handle to poke holes all over the cake. Make the jello according to the package's directions, and before it congeals, drizzle the jello liquid all over the cake. Make sure it gets in the holes. Cover and chill several hours (overnight is better). Let the whipped topping sit in the refrigerator overnight to soften, then spread on the cake in the morning. Add colorful sprinkles to finish off the decoration, and voila'!
