MY REVIEW

"The cake took several minutes longer to bake until a toothpick came out clean. When I added the second layer to the first the weight of the layer squished out the whipped cream and strawberries underneath. Then when I added the glaze to the top the strawberries started sliding off the top. Tasted good, but didn't look so great..."
