This cake is a great way to finish off your Memorial Day feast next weekend. This is a variation of other poke cakes on the blog. Like the others, this cake is easy to make and tastes great. It is best to make this cake at least a day before you want to serve it. It gets better the longer it sits in the refrigerator. It takes a lot of will power not to just dive into the cake, but trust me. It is worth the wait!

  2. This looks yummmmmy! but is it too sweet with the sweetened condensed milk? Could you mix the strawberry topping with just evaporated milk instead?

  6. Not sure it's going to be that sweet. But you could always use some greek yogurt in the mix to put a richness and a bit of tartness back in.

  7. I used strawberry jam in place of the ice cream topping, and store bought cool whip instead of the whipping cream and everyone loved this cake! It was delicious and easy! Thanks for the great recipe!
