had to try this recipe it was on a tag game so got alot of recipies off that ...made it with the "mom's sstrawberry pie" so it was more homeade. We went to town but had supper with my favorite daughter in law (only have one) she loved it & definately wants the recipe, also had to borrow an angle food pan so will return it with the recipe in it, cant wait to try it again using maybe chocolate pudding & the strawberries mmmmmmm

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!

We really liked this dessert! It could not have been easier, or looked more elegant if I had slaved (which I hadn't!). For presentation at a party, I assembled the layers in a clear bowl, like a trifle, rather than the 9x13 pan indicated in the recipe. I did substitute sugar-free pudding and reduced fat sour cream and light cool whip, but I would challenge anyone to guess that the calories had been reduced. I love recipes that can be made ahead of time, eliminating any last minute stress when entertaining, and this dessert certainly falls into that category as well.

This was the best strawberry cake I have ever eaten! I made it for a birthday at work and it was everyone's favorite! Even the chocoholics (of which I am one) voted it the best! Thanks Sydney Mike! You made me look good!
