Canadian Living is a great magazine that I had a subscription to for a number of years now, I have always enjoyed their magazine. They have lots of easy and delicious recipes and informative or creative articles. In their August edition, I came across a contest called The Great Canadian Cakes Contest and decided I would enter.
I thought of a bunch of ideas for intricate cupcakes or cakes involving hours of labor and tedium. Then I thought no, I am going to make what I did for our block party Canada Day celebration that I hadn’t shared with you yet. Super easy and light as air delicious!! A poke cake, the Great Canadian Poke Cake!!!
There wasn’t a crumb left and seemed to be a big hit with everyone. Also, nothing could be easier to make. Amber actually did most of it!!
