This is delicious...I made it for Mothers Day and now I'm making it for Fathers Day...this time I am only using fresh whipped cream with 1/4 C sugar instead of powdered sugar. It's a little lighter in taste, I also didnt have fresh strawberries so I drained the juice off of frozen and put those in the batter. I am going to sprinle with pink sugar crystals.
