Strawberry Ladyfinger Icebox Cake
Total TimePrep: 35 min. + chilling
I really am not sure how to review this recipe. The taste was good. But the directions left something to be desired. In the intro the author mentions "inverting" the cake. The directions never mention that again and, in fact, I believe it would be impossible and disastrous. In the ingredients, it calls for “6 cups fresh strawberries, sliced”, which SHOULD mean “measure out 6 cups of strawberries and then slice them”. That really is a bad direction. Strawberries can be all kinds of sizes – huge or as small as a thimble. A weight rather than volume would have been much clearer and more helpful. I ended up mixing the mascarpone/whipped cream component and judging the amount of sliced strawberries I needed based on that and the amount of room the ladyfingers gave me inside of the cake pan (it ended up being about 4 1/2 cups of sliced strawberries).
