Strawberry Shortcake Cake
A modern twist to an old-fashioned favorite, with the old-fashioned taste. This strawberry shortcake cake will be the hit of your menu. Decorate the top with sliced fresh strawberries.
Cake layers should be about 3/4- to 1-inch thick after tops are cut off, otherwise the cake will be too dry. If a 9-inch pan is used, only fill pan halfway.
Cake can have 2 or 3 layers. Layers are easier to work with during assembly if they have been chilled in the refrigerator. They can be made 2 days in advance and stored in the refrigerator, individually covered with plastic wrap. However, the cake should be assembled 1 to 3 hours before serving.
Instant white cake mix can be substituted for the dry cake ingredients, but not yellow.
