A star design made with fresh berries gave this dessert a patriotic personality for our parade of holiday foods! Everyone loved the creamy filling and rich fruit flavors. It's impressive-looking but not difficult to make. -Laurie Neverman, Green Bay, Wisconsin

"This was fun to make and its not super sweet The fresh fruit made this light and refreshing. I'm looking forward to making this again."

"This tasted great but completely fell apart on me. It seemed like the cake was too light to hold up to the other layers. If I make this again I will put it in a bowl and make a trifle."
