Neapolitan Refrigerator Sheet Cake

"The flavors of strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla combine wonderfully in this moist and festive-looking cake. It's easy to make and may be frozen for later use."

    Made this last week as a Birthday cake for my daughter!!! This one is a keeper. I tried the meat fork which didn't work well for me, so I reverted to an old, small wooden spoon that was my mother's. The end of the handle was perfect!!! I also think that cooling the cake longer than 30 minutes makes it easier to make the holes and fill. All and all a delicious recipe, and I will make it again!!!

    This was delicious, this is a perfect summer, (or anytime) cake. I can't wait to make it again!

    I froze the constructed cake for 2 weeks and then defrosted it in the refrigerator the night before serving. It worked out great. My Mom in particular loved the cake.

    Great recipe. I could have eaten the frosting with a spoon. Thanks, will definitely be making again.
