Five Layer Cake

May 31, 2012

A five layer strawberry shortcake! We’re all about the strawberries ’round here. And homemade whipped cream – there’s really not much that beats a real whipped cream. And shortcake. The cake is not actually shortcake. I cheated a little, so those layers of berries are stacked high between sliced yellow cake … from a mix. It was so insanely easy!

Make cake, cut into layers.

Mix heavy whipping cream and sugar together.

Slice berries, let sit in a bit of sugar.

Layer cake, whipped cream, berries. Repeat (three, four, five times!).

With such ease of preparation, this has become one of my go-to party desserts.

Do you have a certain thing you make for occasions, a go-to party dish or dessert?
