What a great dessert! I took it to a weekend potluck and it was gone in the blink of an eye. I had a lot of fresh strawberries that needed using so I made a double batch of the topping portion of Mom's Strawberry Pie and subbed it for the canned pie filling. I assembled it the night before and the cake did not get at all soggy. Just before serving I smeared on the Cool Whip (strawberry flavor) and topped it all off with a full layer of sliced strawberries. I loved that this was so easy to make even in my RV kitchen, not overwhelmingly sweet thanks to the addition of the sour cream and looked like a million bucks! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
