Yummy Strawberry Cake that you too can make!

I decided to make the most awesome cake for Easter.  I found the recipe here and I just had to share.  I have never made anything quite like it.  Believe me when I tell you it was a massive, I mean a MASSIVE cake!  It was super easy, though a bit time consuming, and loved by all!

Isn't she pretty?  I am not sure you can tell the massive size from this picture.  And, frankly, I didn't realize how big this baby would be! 

Now of course I am well aware that my cake is not nearly as pretty as I am Baker's but she sure did taste amazing and I think she looks okay! 

Here's what you'll need:
  • Box of Red Velvet Cake Mix
  • Box of White or Yellow Cake Mix
  • Whipped Cream
  • Strawberries
And that's it!  Couldn't be much easier!  Now here's an awesome tip for you that I read on someone's blog (and I am sorry I can't remember where) and that I googled too.  Prepare your cake mix as usual but replace the water with Buttermilk!  Yep, buttermilk.  It makes the cake sinfully moist!  And, I always undercook my cakes a wee bit because I can't stand a dry cake.  Trust me, the buttermilk works so well!

So prepare your cakes as directed, in 9" pans.  Cool and you're ready to assemble.

Start with whatever layer you want - as you can see I chose the red velvet.  Next, layer with whipped cream and then strawberries.  Repeat with each layer, until it looks like:

This!  Now, I think this is pretty like this but I wanted to cover the entire cake with whipped cream.

Like so.  I threw some large chocolate chunks that I had on top.  I am thinking I might add them in between each layer or in the vanilla layers next time I make this.  Oh yea, there will be a next time!

 I don't think that this picture really shows the visible appeal of this cake.  It has it all - beauty and taste!

Did I mention that is was delicious?  A big hit in my family for sure!!!  Go a head and give it a try!

Have a happy week!

Buttermilk! That is a great tip. This cake is great looking so much of it and the different colored layers adds to the appeal as well.

Wow! An amazing cake! I've never heard the buttermilk substitution either. Thanks for sharing that tip. For the cake, what kind of whipped cream? The kind made from whipping cream or cool whip or canned whipped cream?

I went to Doll House to get my dress and they promised they would get it in. I was so upset when they didn’t come through for me so I went Sassy Boutique. They were able to get my dress within three 3 days. They had wonderful customer service and nothing was a problem for them. I really appreciated the effort they made to make my night memorable. i will never go to dollhouse again.
