Strawberry whipped cream cake recipe

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 fresh whipped cream! Whip up that whipped cream fresh, baby! But if you really are not able to do that, a container frozen whipped topping will do. Seriously though, this is one of the easiest cakes you will ever prepare!

Feel free to use a homemade yellow cake recipe or prepare a simple box of yellow cake mix for the cake part of this recipe. You can utilize the cake mix trick if you want.

Building the Strawberry and Cream Cake Layers

Start by carefully slicing your cake rounds in half, so that you have four even layers to work with. Then, spread about 1/2 – 3/4 cup pudding between each cake layer.

Once you have a nice layer of pudding on your cake, sprinkle a handful of sliced strawberries over it. Then add the next layer of cake on and continue this process until you get to the top layer.

Note: Dividing 2 cups of sliced strawberries into 3 parts is about 2/3 cup for between each layer.

Finishing the Fresh Cream Cake

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

Once you have covered the entire cake with whipped cream, add the whole strawberries to decorate the cake. You can add as many or as little as you’d like. Slice up some of those strawberries too, if you want!

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. It tastes amazing! And 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 πŸ™‚

  • Would you mind posting your fresh whipping cream recipe? πŸ™‚
