I’m super excited to test out a new Thanksgiving dessert recipe this year.
Since I don’t cook a single thing if I can help for the Thanksgiving meal, I try to pitch in by bringing a fun new dessert or two.
This year, I am tying a poke cake!
I spotted a similar one in one of those Tasty videos on Facebook and I decided I needed to give it a go for myself.
