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.

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! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
