Baking: Strawberry Cake

Doesn't this look like spring? Since strawberries are in season, I thought I would show you a quick, easy and elegant dessert.

Start with a yellow cake mix. I froze these cakes to have them for an emergency, you never know who might show up and need cake at a moment's notice.

I used a pint of strawberries that were washed, sliced and macerated. A fancy word to say they were sprinkled with sugar and allowed to develop their own juices. Spoon them onto the first layer of yellow cake. Top with whipped cream or cool whip. I used cool whip.

Top with the second layer of yellow cake.

Add more cool whip or whipped cream and top with your strawberries. If I had had enough cool whip, I would have covered the sides as well.

Such a pretty dessert and took barely any time at all.

P.S. Thank you so much for all your kind words yesterday. You are all so awesome and I really appreciate it. I am working my way through the grief.
