This is a beautiful cake to behold! And so easy with a prepared white cake. The frosting is absolutely divine. A wonderful spring or summertime dessert; make this cake at the peak of the season when strawberries are at their reddest and sweetest...enjoy! P.S. Great served with a scoop of strawberry ice cream.

  1. In a medium bowl, combine strawberries with the sugar and kirsch; set aside for about 30 minutes at room temperature. Reserve several of the most attractive strawberry slices for decorating the top of the cake.

  3. On medium-high speed of mixer, whip the cream cheese with the powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.

  7. Place second cake layer on top of first layer and press gently. Repeat with strawberries and frosting; decorate top of cake with the reserved strawberries.
  8. Decorate top with a fresh mint sprig, as desired.
  9. Slice into wedges and serve with a scoop of strawberry ice cream.

This is delicious cake and not hard to make at all! I made the layers from a box. I did leave out the kirsch but otherwise made as posted. My daughter had requested a strawberry cake for her birthday and I am glad I chose this one ~ I'll be making it again. Thank you for posting a keeper!!!!
