Rated 4 out of 5 by from i really liked the cake and it wasn't difficult to make. i really liked the cake and it wasn't difficult to make. the taste of the pumpkin pie spice takes a little getting used to. i think next time i would leave it out. i was also a little hesitant with the orange jello, but i could hardly tell it was in there. very good....i will make it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I speed set the jello to make it almost set before putting it on the cake.. I speed set the jello to make it almost set before putting it on the cake.. it didn't get soggy & the jello set up faster in the cake. Whenever I make a poke cake, I do this & the jello goes into the holes & stays there instead of spreading through the cake & making it soggy.
