Red Velvet Poke Cake

1 box red velvet cake mix
Ingredients to make cake (eggs, water, oil)
2 (8oz) boxes instant cheese cake flavored pudding (I couldn’t find cheesecake so I used vanilla)
4 cups of milk
1 8 oz tub of whipped topping
10 oreo cookies, crushed (optional)
Prepare cake mix according to package directions using a 9×13 pan.  Once cake comes out of oven allow to cool for just a few minutes.  Then with a wooden spoon handle (or something similar) begin poking holes in the warm cake.
You want the holes to be fairly big so that the pudding can get down in there.  Be sure to poke right down to the bottom of the cake. 
In a medium bowl whisk the pudding mix and milk.  Whisk for 2 minutes until there are no more lumps.
Pour pudding over cake, taking care to get the pudding into the holes.  Spread the pudding out and use the back of a spoon or spatula to gently push the pudding into the holes. 
Put the cake in the fridge and let cool/set for about 2 hours.  Once your cake has completely cooled, spread on whipped topping – spreading it out evenly over the pudding. 
Spread crushed Oreos on top of cake. 
Keep cake refrigerated.
