Turned out perfect just as is. Everyone loved it and it was gone in minutes when I took it to a church social.
So yummy! So EASY! I made this for Mother's Day. My loving mother-in-law thought it looked and tasted like it came from a bakery (high praise). This elegant and impressive looking torte is a breeze to make. I simplified it further and knocked off some calories by substituting a 12 ounce container of Lite Cool Whip for the whipping cream and lite cream cheese. I used the juice from the frozen berries as directed, but used fresh berries for appearance. The mushy thawed berries? They went into the Arnold Palmers (half lemonade and half iced tea). Thank you!
I love super easy, super fast and totally scrumptious! The ladyfingers make this even easier then a traditional torte... and no one will complain! Trust Me! I used fresh strawberries instead of frozen. There is a layer of ladyfingers in the center so remember to save some after step 4. Thanks Chef! PAC 2007
