  1. I was shopping today and realized it is the season to make everything peppermint! I love this time of year and that cake sounds amazing.

  2. I love making poke cakes! Mine always turn out looking like a sloppy mess but they work. I remember we made these back in early 2000s in our Weight Watchers meetings. The cake was made with diet soda and since the topping and flavors were jello and pudding it helped keep calories much lower.
