Why I Love This Recipe
Our family loves fresh strawberries, but they do not care for strawberry shortcake. So this is one of the ways we enjoy fresh strawberries in season.
Ingredients You'll Need
For the cake:
GGFG Yellow Cake Mix, baked according to package directions as a layer cake or in 9”x13” pan.
ingredients called for in cake mix
large package of strawberries, sliced
½ c. sugar
For the frosting:
1 pt. heavy whipping cream
1/3 c. sugar
½ t. cream of tartar
Make and bake cake according to directions. Cool cake completely. Meanwhile, slice strawberries and add sugar, stir and set aside. When cake is completely cool, use a drinking straw to poke holes all over top of each cake layer; spoon berries between layers of cake as you put layers together (except for top layer, reserving some whole berries for top). Whip cream in a stand or hand mixer starting on low speed until cream begin to thicken, add sugar and cream or tartar, increase speed and beat until cream can hold stiff peaks. Do not overbeat or you will end up with sweetened butter. As you put cake layers together, spread whipped cream over top of berries (except for top layer). Then spread whipped cream on sides and top of layer cake. Put whole berries on top layer of cake. If making a sheet cake, poke holes over all and spread berries over entire top, then spread whipped cream over berries. You can decorate the cake with the whipped cream if desired.
