Carol, you did it again! You made me look like a pro! I do not own a food processor so a good old hand mixer did the trick for me! It goes together VERy easily and looks very impressive. The cake would be gorgeous for a brunch or picnic (I brought it to a family picnic). Instead of strawberry preserves I used raspberry with a generous squirt of lemon juice in it to tarten it up a little. It marbled beautifully and I couldn;t bare to cover it with powdered sugar as it was stunning just as it was! This got the family saying I should give cooking lessons (giggle & snort)so they were MIGHTY impressed. So was I.Reply
