Cream Cheese Cake

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Justmez2

Most preferred cake at my house, great with strawberries, whip cream, vanilla ice cream or just serve by itself. So good no icing or glazing needed. From one of my mom's friends back in 1991, and have made about that many as well!

This receipe is super yummy. I covered it Cream Cheese Frosting and Poured Glaze over it. Then placed strawberries all around it. It held up so nice. Great cake for carving. And sooo easy to make. I will post my picture tonight! It was wonderful.
