Strawberry Cream Cake

This cake is the perfect summer treat. One summer I made it no less than 10 times.  It was requested at every baby shower, book club, or girls night I attended.  My friend Tiffany introduced it to me, but I didn’t get my hands on the recipe until another friend, Linda, moved away.  As a goodbye gift, she typed up a recipe book of all of her most requested recipes and gave it to me.

This is no ordinary strawberry cake.  The cake is topped with a light cream cheese frosting, fresh strawberries, and strawberry glaze.  You will love it!

Start with a jelly roll pan and a white cake mix.  If you don’t know what that type of pan isis, it’s big and thin. I like cakes better this way anyway.  The strawberry glaze and cream on top is where it’s at, the cake is just the base. I added some cut up strawberries to the original recipe because I like texture in my cake.

I love cream cheese frosting.  I pretty much only do cream cheese frosting on everything.  And I love the addition of the whipped topping, it makes the perfect light cream cheese frosting for this strawberry cream cake.  After frosting, I add more fresh strawberries to the top.  You can never have too many fresh strawberries.

Right before serving, top with strawberry glaze and enjoy!
