      This cake tasted fantastic! Only problem I had with it was one of my layers came out a little lop-sided so it was difficult to keep that side of the cake together. I'll make sure they're level next time. But the other side looked beautiful and the whole thing tasted divine. I love the softly strawberry flavored whipped cream due to putting in the strawberry preserves. A wonderful spring dessert!

      YUM! And so easy! I used home made jam and it really kept the cake moistened, espeically because I made the cakes in advance, brushed them w/the jam and then froze them til the day I needed them. Then I copped out and just used Cool Whip instead of heavy whipping cream. But it was wonderful and everyone thought it was from scratch completely. Very delicious.

      The strawberries in the preserves clashed too much with the fresh strawberries. The cake, however, was very rich and tasty. The batter is very thick like brownie mix before cooking, but comes out great after baking. This tastes even better after chilling overnight. Next time I will use strawberry jelly with no chunks in it.
