    Hi Karen-
    I wanted to make one dessert to please a wide range of choosy guests the day after Thanksgiving. I was having a lot of trouble choosing a single dessert, since my guests all liked different flavors & types of desserts. As soon as I saw your photo I knew I had found the ideal recipe! It was perfect since we were already using the grill for dinner. I loved that I could buy the cake & make the strawberries and cream beforehand. For the cream I made a mock Devonshire cream (which I had made recently for English Afternoon scones), which you whip 3 oz cream cheese, 1 tbs. pwd sugar, 1 cup whipping cream, & vanilla. This holds up beautifully made in advance & has a bit more substantial texture than whipped cream (although the guests just thought it was whipped cream). Every guest raved about the cake! Even two guests that normally don’t eat dessert ate it, which was a major coup! I just wanted to thank you for making my dinner a success! Amy
