    This recipe is really good. Was a huge hit with the family. What I did to make it more lower in fat is I replaced the oil for applesauce and egg whites instead of whole egg in the cake mix. - 8/18/08

    Another variation is to put a layer of vanilla pudding between the cake and Cool Whip layer. That's how my grandmother always made this cake, and it is delicious. - 5/3/10

    To reduce calories even more, when making the cake just pour in one can of diet soda; mountain dew or 7-up, whatever you like as long as it is diet--DO NOT use oil or eggs, JUST DIET SODA! This makes a very moist and very good cake. I may have to make this for my birthday. I Love Strawberries! - 4/18/09
