CHERRY POKE CAKE
This cherry poke cake is a simple dessert that is packed full of flavor and topped with sweet cherries on top. It’s a simple to make dessert that your friends will love. Poke cakes are some of the easiest desserts you can make because they start with a boxed cake mix and typically only require a few other ingredients, like a box of jello or pudding like our coconut cream poke cake, and some whipped topping. This cake tastes better the longer it has time to sit so it’s great to make in the morning before your gathering. I like to refrigerate this for a few hours before serving, sometimes even a full day before.
