Strawberry Dream Cake - Origins?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the history of this cake? Was it Jell-o or an old magazine that came up with this pink concoction?

The first time I had ever ate this cake was when I moved down to Florida a few years ago. I fell in love with it and just assumed it was a special concoction created by the restaurant that served it. When the restaurant removed it from the menu, I was crushed as I could not find it served anywhere else in town.

Then I saw the Cook's Country (aka Cooks Illustrated) episode that revamped and educated me on this cake.

Yesterday I tried out their recipe - delicious, even without the frosting.
