I have had a request for a "poke" cake. That is what the customer called it, I have come to understand it is the cake that after it comes out of the oven you poke it with a fork and pour jello down in it and top it with cool whip. This is for a graduation cake in May. The customer called to get her name on "the list" for graduation cakes. This is what she wants for one of the cakes, but she wants it like a decorated cake. I was wondering if it was even possible or is this a disaster in the making?

I was thinking, if I made the cake and poured the jello then waited for it to cool in the fridge. Then flip it on a cake board and ice it with the Rich's Bettercream. As long as it stayed in the fridge until they picked it up, would it work okay?

It seems to me, that if you can frost it, you can decorate it. Some directions...

Yes, that's right. Frost and decorate it any way you like.
