Birthday Cake

I have been busy today getting ready for Jake's birthday tomorrow. I always let the kids plan the menu for their birthday...Jake has requested donuts for breakfast (that will be easy ;o) and for dinner he has requested Caribbean Jerk pork chops and baked potatoes~and I am going to add some grilled pineapple and maybe a salad. Nummy! He asked me to make his favorite cake~ Jello Poke Cake. He LOVES this cake! And it is so incredibly easy to make!

Oh~ AND it got to 87 degrees out today (this MUST be a record for
April 23rd)!!! Which I absolutely loved!!! But not so much having the oven on as well!! Fresh out of the oven~

Jello Poke Cake

1 package white cake mix
2 packages jello (favorite flavor)~I am making strawberry
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup cold water
1 - 3 oz vanilla instant pudding
1 - 8 oz cool whip

Prepare and bake cake according to package directions. Cool for 1 hour. In small bowl dissolve jello in boiling water. Stir in cold water and set aside. With a wooden skewer, poke holes about 2 inches apart in cooled cake. Slowly pour jello over cake and refrigerate until set. For the topping, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes, fold in cool whip. Spread over cake. Enjoy.
