With some slight alterations, this recipe is delicious and SO easy to make. I put a layer of mini marshmallows (1 package), poured on yellow cake mix, arranged sliced fresh strawberries (1 lb), then poured on strawberry jello, baked for 1/2 hour, chilled it for a few hours, served it with whipped cream, and it came out -perfect-. I don't think it serves "24 people". A party of 6 gobbled it up real quick. Will definitely make again :)


I like the easy concept, but this recipe is not good. I think it would be much better using fresh strawberries as the frozen added way too much moisture to the cake. It was one wet mess the next morning. The cake was also sickly sweet, some people may like that, but no one in my family did. I liked how the marshmallows on the bottom of the pan floated to the top to create a crust. It's inspired me to try a rocky road cake using a store bought chocolate cake mix.


I really did not like this recipe. I feel that very pertinent informations are missing. For instance....what package instruction are we to follow for baking?? Should we wait until the cake is completely cooled before flipping it? How does the finished cake look like? I just hope that this cake came out so horrible because of me....
