Jell-O Poke Cake

1 white cake mix

1 small jell-o mix, any flavor (Eli wanted green so we used lime, but strawberry and raspberry are really good as well)

1 cup boiling water

1/2 cup cold water

Make the cake according to package directions. Cool cake for about 20 minutes. Using a utility fork poke cake about every 1/2 inch or so. Make Jell-O by dissolving Jell-O in the boiling water. After dissolved add the cold water. Pour the Jell-O slowly over the cake covering all the holes. Chill for 3-4 hours.
Next I make what my family calls "Chad's favorite frosting". That's my brother, and growing up he didn't like the traditional frosting that you put on cakes, but loved this "pudding" frosting. So I think this is what he had for his birthday cake almost every year!

Chad's favorite frosting

1 envelope Dream Whip

1 small package instant pudding (you can use whatever flavor you would like...chocolate is really good on a white or yellow cake as well, but for this one I just used vanilla!)

1 1/2 cups cold milk

Put all ingredients into a mixer and beat until it thickens. Then frost your cake.

Next I just top that with some whipped topping and then some green sprinkles (or whatever...or nothing!)
