I was really looking for a strawberry cheese cake recipe and was so happy when I found this one. So I bought the ingredients and planned to make this for a party. Unfortuately I was not able to follow the directions as all. The Shortcake layer lists 2 cups of strawberry ice cream topping, whipped cream and fresh strawberries. The directions only tell you what to do with 1/2 of the topping and of course, as is obvious, the whipped cream and fresh strawberries are NOT part of the shortcake layer. The recipe directs that you place in a 13x13x9 pan what ever that might be. What a disappointment.
