I have made this cake two times now my family loves it. The only change I made was adding the lemon juice into the cream cheese and not the heavy cream I found it smooths out the cream cheese faster. And the heavy cream peaks faster with just the sugar added.
I made this for Mother's Day and my entire family loved it. It is a bit time consuming, but well worth every minute of preparation. The very sweet filling is a lovely complement to the tart layers (which are very thin, but it's four layers so that's manageable). The frosting is a bit soft, but that's to be expected with the combination of cream cheese and whipped cream. I made this the day before and kept it covered and stored in the refrigerator. I then added strawberry garnish right before serving. I made it exactly as the recipe stated, and I wouldn't change a thing. (I prepared the filling first, as it must cool before using.)
Amazing recipe, the family absolutely loved. We made it as a joint birthday cake for my husband and daughter and it was absolutely delicious!!
Fabulously moist cake. The sweet-tart flavor is balanced by the frosting. I puréed the strawberries in my Ninja bullet and had no seed issues. I kept the extra frosting by the cake and people piled that on top. I’ve made it several times now. It will be a new tradition for our Easter meal. Don’t let the steps scare you...it doesn’t take long to make.
Absolutely Delicious!! This is the perfect Easter cake. So happy I found this recipe.
This is the worst cake I've ever made. The cake itself was dry and the icing was a goopy mess. The only thing that worked as expected was the jam. Don't waste your time with this recipe.
For the frosting is the sugar supposed to be powdered or regular granulated sugar?
This cake is outstanding. I’ve made it as a layer cake and a sheet cake, and every time I’ve served it I’ve gotten multiple requests for the recipe. Makes a wonderful shower cake. The lemon makes the cake moist and tangy. The mixture of cream cheese, whipping cream, and strawberries in the frosting is divine. It does take longer to prepare, but definitely worth the effort.
best cake I have made in a long time. Absolutely delicious, every aspect was perfect and went so well together.
