I love this cake. I made it with strawberry, but will for sure use raspberries sometime soon!!
I made this for my best friends surprise party I threw for her. Everyone at the party LOVED it!! It was gone within minutes of cutting the cake!! Thank you for sharing this unique recipie!:)
I made this for my BIL's bday- he requested a vanilla cake with strawberries and this cake was *perfect* for the occasion. Everyone loved it, it was attractive, easy, fun and elegant all at the same time. I was completely embarrassed to admit just how easy it was to make, lol. The sour cream in the icing is just delicious. My swirling of the two batters needs some improvement (my cake was basically half pink and half white, haha) but no one seemed to mind, there wasn't a crumb left. I think it's worth experimenting with other fruits and jello flavours- I'll be trying this again come raspberry season!
