Cheesecake Poke Cake with Strawberry Whipped Cream

Today was one of those days where I am out of everything and I cannot go shopping for another four days.  We are out of snacks, goodies, you name it so I have to search and look around and I came up with something.  Okay okay it isn't the most amazing invention ever but I did make my own yellow cake so I should get great credit right?  If you have some yellow boxed cake mix go a head and use it but I didn't have any so I made mine from scratch.  This poke cake has amazing flavors combined together so gear up and taste the best poke cake ever.  *my blog I can exaggerate a bit right?*
