How to Make a Strawberry and Cream Cake

I first tried this Strawberry Whipped Cream Cake at a neighbors potluck dinner about 12 years ago and my family has been in love with it ever since. Typically I will make this cake at the height of the strawberry season when I have serious berry overage from the garden.

Anyway, this cream cake is so good you just HAVE to try it. Let’s just say that I have never had a single complaint whenever I’ve made it.

Whipped Cream Cake Ingredients

One of the things that really makes this cake is the use of fresh whipping cream. Honestly, Cool Whip will simply not do for this recipe (okay… so I’ll admit it. I am a total whip cream snob).ย  Seriously though, this is one of the easiest cakes you will ever prepare!

Cake Tip

I don’t know about you, but I always put about a tablespoon of frosting, or in this case pudding, in the center of my cake plate to ensure my finished cake won’t slip.

Cutting cake layer

Create Your Four Layers

Slice your cake rounds in half, which leaves you with a total of four layers.

Spreading filling on whipped cream cake layer

Add Pudding

Spread about 1/2 – 3/4 cup pudding between each layer.

Top with Strawberries and Repeat

Add a few sliced strawberries. Add the next layer of cake on and continue this process until you get to the top layer.

Add Whipped Cream

When you get to the top layer pile on the whipping cream. Keep spreading it out until the entire cake is covered. Make sure to be generous!ย

Finish off with More Strawberries

Once you have covered the entire cake with whipping cream add the whole strawberries to decorate the cake. You can add as many or as little as you’d like.

Final Tips

When finished, place the cake in the refrigerator until you’re ready for dessert and be sure to put it back if there is anything left when you are done! This strawberry whipped cream cake is great for family gatherings or to make as the perfect dessert just because.

I think the reason it is so popular is because of the freshness of the strawberries and creamy cool texture of the whipping cream. The whole thing just screams summer to me!

    Yum! So I have a question. I live in an apartment complex so I can’t really “garden”… Is there a way for me to have a mini garden (one plant) and keep it in a pot or something? Also, I just moved from Hawaii to Washington so where should I go for the most accurate information about what I can plant?

    Thank you Mavis for this recipe! I was inspired to make this today after seeing your post and it was delicious. Not to mention I found whipping cream at Albertsons on clearance for $1 ๐Ÿ™‚
