Halloween Poke Cake

Halloween Poke Cake created by Jonathan Melendez

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.
