This was probably the worst cake I ever made in over 45 years of cooking and baking. I made this for Easter and my family was so disappointed. All the work and expense that goes into this cake is not worth it. The thickened strawberry sauce is way to thick for it to be poked into a pound cake even when the holes are made larger. Mine only went down a quarter of the way. After you let this “soak” in & let rest, as soon as you flip the pan over to completely cool, you must put it on a plate (which I didn’t, I put it on a cooling rack) it all stuck at the bottom. To make this long story a little shorter the top of my cake was very dry and the bottom is very moist almost soggy in some places If someone else has made this, let me know what I did wrong.
