This is a wonderful vanilla cake with a sweet cream cheese and strawberry frosting. from Bon Appetite Magazine. I This is an AWESOME cake! You can choose to use 2 /9 inch pans or 3/9 inch pans. Even if you use 3 cakes, make sure you split them, I make that suggestion due to the horrible review that was recently left. I am trying to dummy proof this recipe, if you know what you are doing then go for it. This cake really is worth the time it takes to make it. The frosting is delicate and so, so delicious! The cake is moist and dense with a rich vanilla, butter flavor. I have gotten nothing but rave reviews on this cake. Also, this is a huge cake! It will probably serve more than 12-16. I found that 6 cups of strawberries was a bit too much for me but it depends on how many strawberries you like. After reading the very bad review left recently, I must insist that if you are looking for a lowfat cake please DO NOT make and review my cake. The nutrition info is CLEARLY posted. I guess some folks still take out their frustration on line, clearly.
