Wasn't hard to make and was WOW in taste. Served at birthday party and was the hit of the day. It went very fast.

I made this today in a punch bowl, doubling the recipe. I used one and a half (13 ounces each) pre-made angel food cakes, 2 quarts of strawberries (I couldn't get raspberries) and doubled everything else. Kate, I hadn't made this for quite awhile so I kept in mind what you said in your review about wanting to moisten the cake the next time...thanks :) What I did was rinse the strawberries and then sprinkled a bit of sugar on them. This seemed to correct the potential dryness problem. I also refrigerated for about 16 hours, so the longer it sat, the cake probably soaked in more juices. The picture I posted is the one made with strawberries.

This was great. I used light cream cheese and light cool whip and pound cake. I also used strawberries instead of raspberries. Next time I might try moistening the cake slightly with orange juice. The family really enjoyed it and I will definately make it again. Thanks Karen.
