I have made Jello poke cakes for more years than I can remember. The first ones were always layered, but I decided to try it in a 9x13 pan. This made it easier to serve. Also was easier to carry to picnics or potluck dinners. Everywhere I bring it, I am asked for the recipe. Hope you also will like it. This is best made the night before, then frost the next day.

How to Make ORANGE DREAMSICLE CAKE

Step-by-Step

  • 11. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Lightly spray a 9x13 pan/dish
  • 22. Prepare the cake mix according to the package directions.
    Bake 25-35 minutes, depending how hot your oven runs.
  • 33. Take out and cool about 15 minutes.
  • 44. With the end of a wooden spoon poke holes in cake about one inch apart. [I prefer to use a meat fork as to poke holes all around the edges, plus you'll get more Jello into the cake]
  • 55. In a bowl, whisk the large pkg. Jello into the boiling water until well mixed, about 2 minutes. Then stir in the cold water.
  • 66. Pour the jello evenly all over the cake.
    Refrigerate the cake at least 4 hours, preferably overnite.
  • 77. After it sets up, then make the frosting for the cake.
  • 88. In a bowl, whisk together the dry pudding and jello mixes.
  • 99. Pour in the milk and vanilla and whisk about 2 minutes or until it thickens.
  • 1010. Fold in the Cool Whip. - Frost the cake.
  • 11Note:
    Most any other flavor of Jello could be used, lemon, lime, strawberry, raspberry, etc.
