It is my sister's birthday and I ask her what kind of cake she wanted and she told me she wanted a very very strawberry cheese cake or a coconut cream pie. Other than putting the strawberries actually in the cheesecake, or on top I decided to do a poke cake type of cheesecake. Strawberry on top and in the middle.

You can add as many holes as you want or less. You can make them deep or shallow You can use pudding or any kind of fruit purees. It was delicious.

I have to tell you this cheesecake was so fun to make. I enjoyed watching it turn into a delicious dessert beyond my imagination.

The coconut which is one of my sisters favorites just added the perfect topping.
