Banana pudding poke cake uses an 18-ounce yellow cake mix, prepared according to the package directions and baked in a 9-by-13-inch cake pan. Cool the cake for several minutes before taking a spoon handle and poking holes into the cake down to the bottom of the cake pan. Mix together 2 3 1/2-ounce packages of instant banana pudding mix and 4 cups of milk. Stir well until slightly thickened, and spread the mixture onto the cake while carefully pushing the pudding into the holes. Refrigerate for two hours, and frost with 1 8-ounce container of frozen whipped topping that has thawed. Top with 20 crushed vanilla wafers and a garnish of banana slices.
