Never heard of Dream Scream Poke Cake? This isn’t just any poke cake, this is made with the TruMoo Orange Scream Milk.
Dream Scream Poke Cake
When TruMoo they asked me work with them again to create a recipe, (and to promote their sweepstakes below) …. this Dream Scream Poke Cake was the first thing that I thought of! Made with creamy vanilla pudding and the TruMoo Orange Scream milk, it’s like a creamsicle, but better… because it’s CAKE! Cake is always better! The last time I worked with them, I created the most delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter fudgesicles!
Now that my son is older, Halloween looks a little different than when he was little. Before, it was all about the costume and going trick or treating. Even though he and his friends may still hit up a few homes for candy (yes, he’s THAT teen), dressing up in their sports gear, I like to find simple and creative ways to celebrate the holiday.
This Dream Scream Poke Cake is great for halloween parties, halloween dinners or just to have in the month of October.
The thing about making a poke cake with pudding, is you need to use a thicker handled wooden spoon. That’s my professional poke cake advice. Anytime I use anything smaller, I never seem to get the amount of pudding setting deep into the cake. Now if it’s just a jello solution, then a smaller hole works fine. I always wait for the cake to cool a little before poking.
I used the TruMoo Orange Scream Milk to make my vanilla pudding, then poured it first into the poke holes, then over the entire top.
Place it in the fridge to set completely. After about an hour, your cake is ready for it’s topping. I just use whipped cream topping. There is nothing easier and everyone likes it!
After slicing in squares, I placed a halloween theme pick into each piece, just in case someone didn’t pick up on the Halloween theme I was going for.
