This was oh so good. I got rave reviews. However, I only made minor changes to the recipe. 1st change is that I only used 1/2 cup of sugar. 2nd change is that I didn't get a lot of strawberry juice so I followed another user's review and cooked down the frozen strawberries and pureed them with sugar. When doing this, I learned that 1 tablespoon of cornstarch is not enough. My strawberry topping was very runny and ran all over the cake. I also couldn't get a very thick layer since that was the case. Next time I make this, I will either use more cornstarch, or perhaps some pectin, or even gelatin to make it nice and thick. I found getting the ladyfingers to stay upright very difficult so I laid the bottom with ladyfingers, and put a dab of the cream cheese mixture in a small bowl and dipped the bottoms of the ladyfingers in the mixture to act like an adhesive. That worked extremely well.
