Recipe from old Season's Best?

Oct 15, 2005
Does anyone have a recipe for a cake made in the large bar pan with white chocolate in the icing? The cake was cut into 3 sections and stuck together with the icing. There were strawberries on the top. I think it was on the cover of a past S/S Season's Best.

Thanks Ginger! That's it. Here it is if anyone needs it.

Strawberry Cheesecake Torte

1 package (16 ounces) pound cake mix (plus ingredients to make cake)

1/2 cup water

1 package (3 ounces) strawberry gelatin

1/4 cup seedless strawberry jam

1 lemon

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup cold milk

1 container (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed

1 package (3.4 ounces) cheesecake instant pudding and pie filling

1 kiwi, peeled, sliced and halved

1 cup hulled and sliced strawberries

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line stoneware bar pan with 13-inch piece of parchment paper. Prepare cake mix according to package directions; pour into pan, spreading evenly. Bake 15-18 minutes or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean; cool 10 minutes. Carefully lift cake onto cooling rack; cool completely.

In small micro-cooker, microwave water on HIGH 1-2 minutes or until boiling. Add gelatin; stir until dissolved. Add jam; whisk until smooth. Invert cake onto smooth side of large cutting board; remove paper. Prick cake at 1/2-inch intervals. Brush cake evenly with all but 2 tablespoons of the gelatin mixture. Trim 1/4 inch around edge of cake; discard edges. Cut cake crosswise into 3 equal layers.

Zest lemon; set aside. Juice lemon to measure 2 tablespoons juice. In a bowl, combine cream cheese and lemon juice; whisk until smooth. Add milk; whisk until smooth. Spoon whipped topping over cream cheese mixture. (Do not mix.) Sprinkle with pudding mix; mix well. (Mixture will be very thick.)

Place one cake layer on a platter. Attach open star tip to a decorator; fill with filling mixture. Pipe a straight border around edge of cake layer. Place 4 scoops of filling down center; spread evenly to border. Top with second cake layer. Repeat filling as above. For third layer, pipe a decorative border around edge. Spread any remaining filling down center.

Slice kiwi; cut slices in half and arrange on top of cake. Hull strawberries and slice. Place strawberries and reserved gelatin mixture in a bowl; mix gently. (If gelatin mixture has set, microwave on HIGH 5-10 seconds or until softened.) Spoon strawberries over top of cake; sprinkle with reserved lemon zest.
