My original recipe for Drunken Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake can easily be converted to non-alcoholic. Simply substitute strawberry pop or red cream soda for the sparkling beer.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This cake is so light and delicious. And the frosting... it's so good it almost didn't make it onto the cake! The combination of marshmallow cream and cream cheese make a great frosting. Yummy!
