No chocolate allowed...


 I love to bake birthday cakes and cupcakes!
This one was for my daughter's boyfriend that dislikes chocolate.
So strawberry it was!
 A 4-layer vanilla cake with strawberry cream cheese frosting!


Fresh sliced strawberries were place betwwen the layers along with the whipped crea/cream cheese frosting. I used strawberrypoke cake for two of the layers and plain white cake for the other two.

A poke cake is a cake that you poke holes into after its baked and cooled. The holes are then filled with jello or other liquid fillings such as condensed milk, chocolate, pudding or even pureed fruit. This infuses every bite of the cake and keeps the cake moist. I used strawberry jello.

It was yummy, light and not a mention of chocolate!

Staying Cozy,
Carrie

That looks absolutely delicious! I haven't made a poke cake in a long, long time. I used to make a red and green one (2 layers) for Christmas and it was always so much fun to cut into it.
Have a wonderful Wednesday- xo Diana
