That Strawberry Cake :)


  • Jiffy Cake Mix or other of your choice prepared according to package directions*
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • 13.5 ounce container Strawberry Glaze


  • Allow baked cake to cool for ten minutes in the pan before turning it out onto a platter or large plate. You can also decorate it in the pan and serve from the pan if you like.
  • Once cake has cooled completely, place cream in large mixing bowl and beat with electric mixer until soft peaks form, about two minutes or so.
  • Add in vanilla and confectioner's sugar and beat again until stiff peaks form. Ice cake. Add a decorative border or spooned up border (by icing the top really thick and using a spoon to form a recess in the center) around the sides to hold glaze in for the next step.
  • Wash cut the tops off of strawberries. Blot them dry with a paper towel. Arrange on top of cake.
  • Spoon glaze over strawberries and use a butter knife to spread to coat each one.
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.


*I use the size cake mix that makes an 8x8 cake. If you prefer to use a full size cake mix to make a 9x13, simply double the whipped cream, confectioner's sugar, and make sure you have enough strawberries. The same size glaze container will still be enough.
