"I made this cake for Easter. After a big meal, we waited a few hours and everyone thought it was great. Light, flavorful, and easy. I very seldom use a cake mix and like to make everything from scratch but I will make this again. I did use about 12 ounces of whipped topping instead of 8 ounces."

"It was very easy to make and put together with a pretty presentation. It is also very easy to make a variation. Due to various situations, I had to make it with Strawberries, Cranberries and Lemon. It was delicious."

"Really nice recipe. I used frozen raspberries and my first picking of rhubarb of the season. Fresh berries would have been nicer, of course. I'll try the recipe with strawberries next time."

"The cake overall is fine, but what is really fantastic is the rhubarb sauce - I have made it a couple of times for other applications - ice cream topping, etc."
