Orange Creamcicle Poke Cake

Sharing is caring!

I am so addicted to pudding poke cakes!!!  They are so easy, so tasty and they are real crowd pleasers!  There are sooo many combinations you can make with these poke cakes and since it is the summertime I have been making citrus ones and they are amazing!!

You just take whatever flavor cake mix you like, bake it, poke it, pour over whatever pudding flavor you choose, top with cool whip and there you go, a wonderful refreshing dessert that will wow everyone!

This one I made with my sister in mind.  She loves creamcicles so naturally she adored this cake :)

    Great idea! I have made poke cakes before but have never experimented with different flavors. When I saw this orange creamcicle one I had to pin it! Visiting from Let’s Get Social Sunday and following you via Google+!

      Pillsbury makes it but I think it is for the summer, and Duncan Hines makes an Orange Cake mix all year round.

    They looks absolutely wonderful. I remember the old creamsicle ice creams and how much I loved those things as a kid. If that cake is anything like that I can’t have it in my house. I have given up sugar and grains, but my husband still eats sweets. I usually try to make this kind of thing to take out so there is none left over to bring home.

    I followed you on Sverve.

    I make this, but I add a can of Mandrian Oranges. Drain oranges. Use large can of oranges. Save half of oranges for icing. Put other half of oranges in cake mix and mix with cake ingredients. The mixer will break up the slices into small pieces. When you put the cool whip on, lay on the orange slices as well, or cut slices in half and and fold into cool whip.

    Made this in my 9×13 Pyrex dish. I had no room for the whipped topping. Next time I will only make one box of pudding. Two boxes was a bit too much. It’s à good quick cake.
