Raspberry Lemon Poke Cake is so good. It starts with a white boxed cake mix, and raspberry jello and is topped with lemon pudding frosting. It is the perfect mixture of sweet and tangy.
A poke cake is a basic cake made with either a mix or homemade. Holes poked in the cake with a fork or a wooden spoon. Then either jello or pudding poured over the cake.
Absolutely use what ever flavor cake you choose.
No, use the frosting of your choice. Often I use whipped cream or Cool Whip.
Because it has jello in the cake and pudding in the frosting, you should definitely refrigerate left over cake. It should keep 3-4 days.
