Just wondering--when i pour the liquid gelatin onto the poke cake, do i let the cake cool for a bit, or do it immediately?
1 (18.25 ounce) box white or yellow cake mix
1 small box gelatin, any flavor
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup cold water
1 large container Cool Whip® or desired frosting
Bake cake as per instructions on box. Leaving cake in pan, prick cake with a large, two-pronged fork at 1/2-inch intervals. Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add cold water and spoon over cake. Chill cake in the pan for 4 hours. Dip pan in warm water for 10 seconds; unmold onto a serving plate. Frost. Garnish as desired, and refrigerate.
I do mine when the cake has cooled.. not sure why, but I do lol
I always let the cake cool in the fridge for like a day but thats's just me. If you have the time I would let it chill for a little bit it seems to help the jello or pudding set up better.but like I said that's just how it seems to me..
