MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 10, 2011

Very sweet and tasty! I used dairy free margarine in the icing and it would not set up. Next time i might try the butter-flavored Crisco and see how that does.

Made this for Father's Day and got rave reviews! So moist and yummy. It's nice to have something other than chocolate and this totally hit the spot.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 29, 2011

Pretty, yummy and light. The cake has a very NATURAL strawberry flavor. I added some strawberry jam to make the frosting more spreadable, so could use a little more pureed strawberries in the frosting. This cake would be perfect for a girl's birthday party or Valentines Day. Definately a keeper.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 29, 2011

Great summer cake. Strawberry flavor is not overpowering. The berries are pureed so there are no chunks of berries in the cake. The taste reminded me of the Crunch Berries (cereal) I used to love when I was growing up!
