We love ice box cakes when the weather is warm outside. Poke cakes are cool and refreshing and everyone loves them. We had a small get together on May21, 2016 and it happened to be Armed Forces Day so A simple strawberry poke cake turned into a patriotic dessert. I always thought a white chocolate pudding would be great with a strawberry cake and it was amazing . The Cream cheese topping is fluffy and rich. The fruit you could make as a flag or how ever you want. This is a great dessert for any summer function!1
