I'm not a real fan of strawberry shortcake so I wasn't sure I'd like this recipe. BOY WAS I WRONG!! The addition of Jell-O and cream cheese and sweet blueberries really makes this dish awesome. Your guests WILL rave (mine did) and will eat a much bigger piece than you think....!!
thanks for the base idea for a wonderful cake! i nixed the jello altogether because i'm really not a big fan. i laid the pound cake in the bottom of the pan, and topped with a handful of blueberries, raspberries, and diced strawberries. then i poured over a can of blueberrie pie filling. then the cheesecake mixture, topped with the fresh fruit flag. TO DIE FOR!!! it's a 4th of july tradition!
I made a similar version of this cake 10 years ago. However, it didn't have Jello on the bottom. Instead, you used 2 layers of Pound Cake(or personal preference) with a layer in the middle of vanilla custard or pudding that had pureed blueberries and strawberries in it. Yum! The kids really seemed to like this version with the Jello though. Easier to make then the other one.
