Raspberry Jello Poke Cake

My mom made this cake for my birthday this year and I forgot how much I loved it!  She made it with Strawberry Jello.  I decided I would use raspberry for our Easter dessert.  It did not disappoint!  I love this cake!!  Try using a different flavor of Jello to match the occasion!!!

Bake a white cake mix according to package directions.

 Poke holes in the cooled cake.  You can use a fork or the end of a wooden spoon.

Pour Jello over the top!

Refrigerate for a few hours and then top with 1 small carton of whipped topping!
