Recipe seemed promising-NOT! The Jello makes it taste fake, worse than boxed strawberry, not the seemingly fresh fruit bakery taste you dream when "strawberry puree" is a main ingredient. I didn't believe the "taste fake" reviews but it's 100% true. I didn't make the this icing-hate butter-creme icing. The cake is pointless just make the icing. Instead I used Stabilized Whipped Cream Icing-on this website, with berry puree, and another package of berries on top. Tasted Great! The cake (breadth) turned out just fine, need to practice on presentation of icing-tricky-read reviews and add extra sugar. A little practice and jaws will drop in anticipation...
My last birthday I bought ,separately to make at home, Walmart bakery white sheet cake, strawberry filling, and a ton whipped icing-added a bottle of imitation strawberry flavoring. $2 and some elbow grease better than the cheapest cake made. Everybody went NUTS! Everybody died and went to heaven, all you need is decent cake-any flavor as long as the icing is pink, and filling/icing with "BITS"/"TASTE" of berry in it.
