Halloween Poke Cake

I have to confess,
I have never made a poke cake before.
I have seen many recipes for poke cakes and
they always look delicious, but I have never made one.
I have no idea!

I found this recipe in one of my many Taste of Home Cookbooks.
The recipe can be found in..
Taste of Home 2006
Quick Cooking Annual Recipe Cookbook or
you can also find the recipe at Taste of Home.

This moist cake is delicious.
The orange gelatin adds a wonderful orange flavor and
the buttery chocolate frosting is great.
Make this wonderful Halloween Poke Cake
