What a great cake! My 7 year old son helped make this, and we had a blast! It was really easy and came out soft and moist. I followed the recipe just as written. This cake is great with a cup of coffee in the morning, or with neapolitan ice cream for dessert! We'll definately make it again!
Wow, this is a really good pound cake! I didn't have high expectations, considering it starts with a white cake mix, and wow was I pleasantly surprised. The flavors are just right, not overly sweet; and the appearance is so pretty. I was out of milk, so I used half-and-half, and that may have made for a nicer texture. Forget the kids, DH and I are keeping this one for the adults.
I made this cake for an adult birthday party and everyone loved it. I just made it again but as cupcakes and my boyfriend thinks they are absolutely amazing!! Thank you so much for this recipe - it's different and very good.
Wowed the adults, raves from the preteens, the six year old said "awesome" and I was impressed. Made this recipe three times. I found all mixes are not created equal!!The mixes were larger but did work out well. On the Canadian side I was unable to find the dry Nestle Strawberry Quick, so needed to sustitute. The first cake was made using three tablespoons of the liquid Strawberry Quick (stopped short of the four tablespoons I had planned to use) The second cake I subbed with Strawberry Mousse. On an extended weekend to the U.S. I found the powdered Strawberry Quick and made sure to buy the large can. All three were great, with the first two having a more delicate strawberry taste. Looks fablous served on a footed glass plate ( be sure to remove a slice to allow for a great display) Thanks for posting this recipe, Gerry 999
The inside of this cake is really pretty. I used 2 cups of batter each for the first two layers and ended up with a lot of batter left for the third layer. I would reccomend using 3 cups batter per layer.
