“Easy and delicious cake to make, with a homemade whipped cream frosting and a strawberry glazed topping- so good! My friend Liz, shared this recipe with me after having this cake at her suprise birthday party this year. This was a recipe that I had to have. **Danish Dessert is found next to the Jell-O in baking section at the grocery store.”
