Orange Creamsicle Poke Cake


This Orange Creamsicle Poke Cake is made with a homemade vanilla cake that’s soaked with a mix of sweetened condensed milk and orange JELLO powder. It’s topped with vanilla whipped cream for a combination that is reminiscent of a creamsicle and perfect for summer!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend. Ours was relatively laid back and involved plenty of food, friends and celebrating the resurrection of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ! It was a beautiful day too – nice and warm. We took Jessie on a nice, long walk and then remembered that although we are excited about all the warm weather, she actually prefers winter. The sun is hot for her and she’s a spoiled indoor dog. She does love a good walk though.

We also completed day 4 of my IVF shots. So far things have gone pretty well. The first two days were a little more stressful because we hadn’t quite gotten the hang of mixing all the medicines and pulling everything into the syringes, but we’ve got it down pretty well now. The needles are small and the physical marks they leave behind are smaller. Emotional marks are yet to be seen, but so far all is well. We have a first monitoring appointment tomorrow to see how things are progressing.

I’ve been extra healthy recently in preparation for these couple of weeks, so sadly I didn’t get to eat a ton of this cake. I wanted to – creamsicles are definitely a fave – but I did get to taste it and it was delicious! Between my Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream Cake and this poke cake, it’s hard to decide which is more fun.
