    Tandy Higgins's Note:

    This cake is Awesome! I got the recipe from my niece Laura Jean who had made it for Christmas. She said that everyone loved it, and she is right. It is the most moist cake I have every had. One tip that she gave me is to bake the cake ahead of time (if you can) and put it in the freezer, since the recipe calls for splitting the cake layers. This can easily be done then with a large serated knife. Be sure to make extra Dipped Strawberries if your kids are around to help!

      Bunco Babes are right! My daughter, Laura Jean, made it for us and has made it for other events. It is beautiful, but Bunco Babes is right --make sure to dip some extra strawberries:). It is a very moist cake and would be a hit for wherever you are going.

      This cake is fabulous!!!!!! Made it for a birthday-people were asking for seconds, even the birthday girl who NEVER takes seconds of anything!!!! I used raspberry preserves (all I had) and added a layer of chocolate pudding in the middle. Instead of canned frosting, topped the cake with KillerTaste Bud's Pudding Frosting~Pudding Frosting. Dipped strawberries in white and dark chocolate for contrast. A fun, yet very tasty cake-even the pink color is festive! Will make again. Thank you for sharing!!!!!!
