Don’t you love Pinterest? I do! Follow me here to keep up to date with the wonderful pins I come across. This particular pin didn’t link to a recipe, so here is a step-by-step if you don’t know where to start.

All I did was bake a white cake mix in 2 round cake pans.
I used whipped cream for my frosting, because my husband so dislikes frosting……..and fresh whipped cream is so super easy and spreads so nicely on freshly baked cakes.  Put some whipped cream between your layers as well.

Then I just placed sliced strawberries on the sides of the cake and I dipped my berries in a lil’ sugar for the top of the cake,  like the picture and served it on my own pretty glass cake plate. It was Fab!

You’ve got to give it a try.

To make whipped cream:  use 1 pint of fresh whipping cream and beat on high until light creamy peaks form, then slowly add in about 1/3 – 1/2 C powder sugar, more if you like it really sweet. Continue beating a few more seconds, ‘til real thick, and it’s done!

As my girls were growing up, they watched me make whipped cream dozens of times. Now when they started making it at 10 and 12 years old, they did not go about it carefully at all nor did they slowly add their powdered sugar into it as I always did.   I learned by watching them that you don’t really have to be so careful when whipping your cream! It nearly never fails or turns to butter like some  may scare you into believing. Matter fact one of my girls has even, in a hurry, dumped it in the Vitamix, with the sugar and all, and in less than one minute she had perfect whipped cream! Who knew?! Sometimes we mammas have to step back in humility and learn from our babes.

(Note: I usually use organic  heavy cream but  for some reason Horizon brand org cream does not whip well. I can’t figure out why not, but it just doesn’t whip like other organic creams do.)

Delightfully Yours, Annette
