    DogAndCatDoc's Note:

    I have long been a fan of other "poke cakes", because the fruity gelatins make the cake incredibly moist and give it a nice burst of flavor. I thought this would be a nice rendition for Halloween. It comes from Quick Cooking magazine.

      I love poke cakes and this was no exception! I did tweak it a tiny bit- I substituted half the water with Grand Marnier when making the Jello! Also, I divided this into two separate 9x9" pans so I had one cake to bring to work, and one cake to keep! It was a definite hit at work- the Jello Grand Marnier made the cake very moist and gave it a nice flavor! Definitely worthwhile!

      I had plans to make this during Halloween week, but forgot about it until this week. A little late, but that's ok. I also could not locate any of the little pumpkins after Halloween, so I used regular candy corn. Cake is supper moist as all pokes cakes are. You even use a can frosting to save time. Nice treat for Halloween or just Fall. Thanks!
