Confetti Poke Cake

Confetti Poke Cake |

I just had to take a big deep breath before starting to write this post.  Is time flying by for everyone like it is flying by for me?  I’m telling you – it’s crazy!  Like, how is it August tomorrow?  I have no idea.  We are talking school supplies, football and butternut squash and hay rides.  Am I complaining?  Not at all.

But this summer has been pretty amazing.  For one thing, the weather has been outstanding for summers in Missouri.  I went on a run yesterday after work at 4:30 and it was only 75 degrees, with no head index…totally unheard of!

So for that reason and more, I’m not totally ready for summer to be over.  Also, I’m still stuck on summer food.  Zucchini, avocados, tomatoes, and sprinkles, of course.  Not that sprinkles aren’t appropriate at other times of year, it just seems that they are extra-appropriate in the summer.

And combined with a poke cake?  Oh yeah, summer = defined by poke cake!  I grew up on it.  It’s chilled, served with whipped cream and makes a perfect dessert for summer cookouts.  And then only way to make a poke cake better?  Add some colorful confetti, of course!

This cake is sweet, super vanilla-y, extra-moist and a perfect compliment for strawberry gelatin filling.  The homemade vanilla whipped cream is the perfect flavor and texture compliment to the cake and kids will go crazy for this cake…summer or not!
