I made this once for an office potluck, and now am asked to bring it every time (sigh…). I followed the suggestions of other reviewers by decreasing the sugar to 3/4 cup. Also, made my own glaze with the following ingredients: cook 5 minutes 1 qt. Sliced berries, 1 cup sugar, 3 Tb cornstarch, and 1 Tb lime juice, add a little orange juice if glaze is too thick. Please note, the quart of strawberries used for the glaze is separate from the quart used for the topping. Once the glaze was prepared and had cooled, I stirred in the other quart of sliced fresh strawberries. Many compliments of how great tasting the fresh strawberries were, and quite a few comparisons to really good strawberry shortcake. Once strawberry season had passed, I made this recipe with only frozen berries. It still tasted good, but lacked the beautiful bright red color and texture of fresh strawberries. I’ve made this with angel food cake, with pound cake, and with yellow cake. I prefer the yellow cake. Next time, I plan to divide the yellow cake batter between a 9 x 13 inch pan and an 8 inch square pan, so that there is enough room in the pans to layer on the toppings without crumbling up the cake. It will look better when served. The crumbled cake was a little messy.

This recipe was great on short notice, everyone loved it. The only thing I did not like about it was the strawberry glaze. I STRONGLY recommend you make your own glaze which is simple. I will make this again with my own glaze. If I was short on time I wouldn't use the store glaze...I would use no glaze at all.

Superb! Added 1 tsp of vanilla to the cream cheese/whipped topping. Fresh blueberries layered on the top for a little something extra and served in a trifle bowl for a beautiful presentation! Loved this recipe!
