Don’t you love Pinterest? I do! Follow me here to keep up to date with the wonderful pins like this one that I come across! This particular pin didn’t link to a recipe, But here is a step-by-step of how I made one, if you don’t know where to start.
All I did was bake a white boxed cake mix in 2 round cake pans.
I used whipped cream for my frosting, because my husband so dislikes icing and frostings……..and because 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 this festive strawberrry cake a try!
To make whipped cream: use 1 pint of fresh whipping cream and beat on high (using your wisk not beaters), 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!
Back when my girls were growing up, they watched me make whipped cream dozens of times. When they started making it at 10 & 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 a few things by watching them, first 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 mama’s if we step back can learn a few things from our kids 🙂
(Note: I use organic heavy cream).
