Strawberry Cheesecake Cake


I made this cake for a friend’s birthday, and I can say honestly that everyone loved it! Even people who don’t particularly like cake went bananas over this confection. I’m making the chocolate version of this for another friend’s birthday this week!

  • Two 8-ounce packages cream cheese, at room temperature 
  • 2/3 cup granulated white sugar 
  • pinch of salt 
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
