Jello Poke Cake

If you've never made one of these cakes you need to. They are definitely a family favorite and so easy to make. They are moist and not too sweet which often leads to overeating. It is a lot of fun to try different Jello flavors. My favorites are lime green, red raspberry, and lemon. I made one of these cakes festive for the holidays by putting the cake mix in two round cake pans and then making one cake red and the other green. When layered on top of each other with the whipped topping spread around it, it looked like I had slaved in the kitchen all day. Have fun with this one.
