What’s a poke cake?
Poke cakes are a kind of recipe that uses a boxed cake mix and then in order to make sure the cake stays moist, flavorful, and packed with fun in every bite we’re going to poke holes in it with a straw or a wooden spoon handle.
Once the holes are poked in the baked cake we fill them up with delicious filling! Making Twix cake with this method is great because the chocolate, caramel, and other deliciousness ends up all the way throughout the cake!
Poke cakes are great to make with kids. They love helping to poke the holes and fill them in with delicious sauces and fillings!

Kitchen Essentials for Poke Cakes:
If you are trying to pick out some of the best supplies to stock your kitchen for cake mix recipes and baking in general, these are some of our favorites and must have items.
I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are a must when doing cake mix recipes which can settle and become thin at lot easier than traditional cookie dough.
Of course mixing bowls, a mixer, spatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!
