What better way to start off my birthday week then with some seriously delicious cake? My dad's b-day is just days before mine and all he requested of me was a strawberry shortcake. My presentation was a little less than stellar (does anyone have any tips for making things pretty?), but the taste was on point:

Ingredients
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 12 oz of whipped topping
  • 2 oz of whipped cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 pounds of fresh strawberries, trimmed and sliced
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease square baking pan and line with parchment paper.
  • Beat eggs until very light. Beat in sugar, water and vanilla. Sift flour, baking powder and salt and beat quickly into mixture. Immediately pour into pan. 
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. 
  • Peel away parchment paper, and cool completely.
  • Freeze for about an hour.
  • Slice cake horizontally into two layers.
  • Spread a layer of whipped topping over the bottom layer. Arrange strawberry slices evenly over the whipped topping. 
  • Place the top layer over the whipped topping and strawberries. Place in the fridge to solidify.
  • In a bowl, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Fold whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture.
  • Spread across top of the cake. Place sliced strawberries as desired.
  • Refrigerate overnight.

Serve with vanilla ice cream and fall in love, okay? xx
