    Have made this cake for 16 years as an Aniversary/Canada Day BBQ tradition. Our family absolutely loves it. I tried every type of variation,including using or adding a layer of pudding or custard. All variations have been a hit. The family best takes a little longer because I make it the night before and I usually have to double the recipe. I make my own white pound cake. While it is cooling,I make the jello but I use 3 or 4 packs and reduce the water. I let that firm in the fridge while the cake is cooling. After the cake has cooled I pour the jello over the cake,cover it and let it set over night. In the morning I cover it with real whipped ***** stabilized with a small amount of sifted icing sugar and set the strawberries. The cake has never been soggy using this method. It takes a little longer but worth every morsel. Happy Canada Day.
