This turned out well but the mousse was a little tart for me with the tangy flavor of yogurt. Next time i`ll cut down on lemon juice or add more sugar or use vanilla yogurt. Great jumping off point though. Thx!
I used a different sponge cake recipe and added some fat free cool whip to the whipped cream. It came out really nice and you could really taste the fresh strawberries.
I have been making this cake for special occasions for a few years now. It is really fantastic! I have made it a bit lower fat by replacing the whip cream in the mousse with low fat vanilla yogurt. In the frosting I use low fat cream cheese with coconut in it and about 1 cup of powdered sugar, per package of cream cheese. I also put fresh strawberries on the cake before I layer in the mousse and on top. It adds a nice touch. This cake is a visually beautiful cake as well as delish!
This recipe was great! Easy to follow, and precise. All of my roommates loved it!!!! Will make many times again!
I made this for a 7 family get together. Everyone loved it, and the cake was gone in 20 minutes.
i used cake mix too~ and only put one cake slice on the bottom with loads of strawberry on the top~ the recipe is awsome!!!!!! everyone loved it!!
did not feel it was very difficult to make. I kinda cheated and used a box cake mix, the first time i used an angle food cake the second time i used a pound cake. I also used frozen sliced strawberries for the mousse and fresh for only the topping.The mousse comes out great maybe a little time consuming but good things usually are. It was a big hit for the family...perhaps too big because i am making it again this month for a family gathering!!
I made this recipe for a Mother's Day brunch dessert. It was a real hit! The pieces of cake look lovely when they are cut, with the strawberry mousse between the layers of cake. I used powdered sugar instead of granulated sugar in the whipped cream for the frosting and added 1 teaspoon vanilla. The recipe is fairly labor intensive and probably not for beginner cooks, but well worth the effort.
