Celebrate 4th of July with a Patriotic poke cake as it is a perfect addition to the dessert table. It’s so easy to make and the flavor of the Jello-O, whipped cream, and cake is the perfect combination to a light treat. It is a huge favorite with my family and I am sure it will be the same with yours.
