MY REVIEW

Made this for company dinner and everyone couldn't get enough of it! Made it with a little variation. Added almost 8oz of cool whip to filling. Also stirred up the strawberries in a carton of glaze before adding to layers. The cake itself is just awesome.

This dessert, as a whole, is delicious. But the cake itself is fantastic! Extremely moist & not too sweet. Another great thing I noticed about this cake is that it keeps well without getting soggy. Four days later & it was still as fresh as when I first served it. One of our favorites.

We absolutely loved the cream cheese filling, but next time I think I'll try it on pound cake instead of the yellow cake.
