Strawberry & Plum tray bake with cheeseripple cake

It is my eldest sister birthday today!  She told me that she loves fruits on the cake.  So I decided to bake her this Strawberry & Plum tray bake with cheeseripple. 
The cake is soft and moist as cream cheese were part of the ingredients inside.  It is indeed yummylicious!

I wish you a very Happy Birthday my dear sister!  Have a wonderful time.
