Light Strawberry Layer Cake
Use mascarpone cheese or heavy cream instead of cream cheese in the strawberry filling if preferred.
For a richer cream cheese frosting, beat together 2 sticks room-temperature butter, 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, and 2 teaspoons clear vanilla extract. Add more sugar to taste.
The directions for making the cake are based on the particular brand mentioned. Follow instructions on the box if using a different brand.
