      This was easy to make and it made a very nice presentation. It's almost like a strawberry shortcake, a little sweeter. A friend was getting married and asked us to bring a pot-luch dish for the party afterwards. I went ahead and made both cakes and they were the first thing gone from the table. I managed to get a very small piece! Guess I'll have to make another one for home!!

      I made a few substitutions and made this cake for a boy's FIRST birthday party today. I used margarine as a substitute for the unsalted butter and low-fat plain yoghurt as a substitute for the sour cream. I substituted the lemon zest with pineapple essence(personal preference of the family for whom I was baking this cake) and orange essence instead of orange zest. This cake came out grand and tasted wonderful! Everyone was very impressed with the beautiful red strawberries laid out on the whipped cream. Since they wanted the cream to set, they froze this cake overnight and cut it the next day. They said a hearty THANK YOU for the cake:) Thanks from all of us!

      I made this for my son's 27th birthday. In our family, the guest of honor gets to pick the birthday dessert. Matthew requested strawberry shortcake so I was looking for something that would still look like a birthday cake. This was delicious - everyone loved it. I used whipped cream and fresh berries - very simple to put together and it looked wonderful. I think this one will show up at more than one party this year. Excellent recipe for a group - moist, homey, and lovely taste. Love, love, love it!
