Things You Need:

Step by Step method

  • Step 1:

    Bake the cake, according to recipe directions and allow it to cool completely. Then, slice into 2 or 3 layers. You can use a knife or a cake leveler. You can also use a thread to make nice neat layers. All you do is cut a long thread, wrap it around the cake and pull the ends around the opposite way, slicing through the cake.

  • Step 2:

    You’ll need about 3 cups of stabilized whipped cream. You can use our recipe that uses meringue powder or you can also stabilize whipped cream with cornstarch, gelatin or piping gel.

  • Step 3:

    Cover the bottom layer of your cake with whipped cream.

  • Step 4:

    Then top with strawberry pie/cake filling (you can use our recipe or use the canned variety, if you prefer).

  • Step 5:

    Repeat for the other layers of your cake. Once your layers are done, ice it completely with whipped cream. Use a spatula to work from the top of the cake and then work on the sides. We’ve gone for a more textured look with our whipped cream, rather than a smooth one.

  • Step 6:

    We’ve flavored some of the remaining whipped cream with cocoa and made a border along the bottom of the cake and added some dollops on top. Then top the dollops with a cut strawberry.

  • Step 7:

    For the finishing touch, sprinkle some shaved chocolate all over.
