I have been making this cake since it was published in your magazine in 2004 (about 3 times a year). This is the most request dessert at all my family gatherings. It is so easy to make and so delicious.

I just made this cake for my mom's 71st birthday. Everyone loved it. We made a triple layer and a 9 X 13" sheet pan. For the sheet pan, I substituted a cream cheese frosting. Note that the strawberries do make the frosting runny. We served the cake cold and it was delicious!

This cake is AMAZING!!! I have made it on numerous occasions and the cake itself is absolutely perfect! Many strawberry cakes have an artificial flavor and this one doesn't. It is moist and stands up beautifully to frosting. A couple of recommendations for presentation if you are using the Strawberry Buttercream recipe. Refrigerate your layers before you frost them as the frosting will 'break' if it gets too warm and will slide right off your cake. If you garnish with berries be sure they are whole and very dry and that you keep your cake refrigerated or very cool or again the berries will slide off the cake ruining what is a spectaculr presentation. I have done this cake for a BBQ and did it in a 9x11 deep dish glass pan and frosted it in the pan. It was perfect for the warmer atmosphere and was so bright and inviting. This is one of my all time favorite cakes!!! And everyone loves it, even people who 'don't like cake' .... crazy people!! :)

I've made this cake more times than I can count. It is DELICIOUS and I'm not a big fan of cake. It's very rich, sweet and strawberryish! We often freeze part of it for sometimes down the road. If you want to see my version, here's the link. Everyone I've ever made it for loves it. http://fromchapelhilltochickenville.blogspot.com/2010/05/summer-strawberry-cake-fantastic.html

The frosting just does not hold up even after adding more powdered sugar. I have made this cake twice and neither time did the frosting work. Overall, a disappointing recipe.
