Reviews for Strawberry Fudge Torte
"This was absolutely decadent! It was so rich and sinful. My guests loved it!"
"I was very impressed with how easy this dessert was to make and also the overall appearance but I wish the overall taste would have been better. The taste of this torte definitely has good intentions but there was WAY too much cream cheese mixture in my opinion and it was a little too sweet. I think if I would have used a third of the cream cheese mixture to make a nice thin layer on top and left everything else the same, it would have bee much better!"
"Looks beautiful and tastes amazing."
