"Have to say, I screwed it up, but it still came out great LOL :) I didn't read all the directions, and added all the fruit at the beginning. After an hour, I gave it a taste, and debated whether it even needed the cream cheese part. I went ahead, and it's great BOTH ways."

"I made this for a baby shower brunch and it was a big hit. It is very pretty and tasty too. I will make this one a family favorite. A little pricey, but I added some strawberries that were on sale to extend it a bit."
