strawberry butter cake

strawberry butter cake
{original recipe from Desiree @ Chic Coastal Living - i modified it to one cake mix & one large tub of cool whip}

  1. Duncan Hines butter recipe cake mix (don't forget the ingredients on the box to make the cake)
  2. Large pack of strawberries
  3. Cool Whip - 1 large tub
  4. Sugar

  • Make cake as directed
  • Divide into two round 9 inch pans and bake as directed
  • Flip one cake upside down on the dish that you will be serving it on
  • Cut strawberries into thin slices (leave 4 of the prettiest strawberries out to use for the top of the cake)
  • Place strawberries in a bowl and sprinkle slices with lots of sugar and mix well
  • Place sugar strawberries slices in refrigerator while you start to layer the cool whip on top of the first cake
  • Place a layer of strawberries on top of the cool whip for filling (avoid placing strawberry slices on very edge, so that the juice will not seep down the sides)
  • Next, layer more cool whip over the strawberry filling
  • Add the second cake on top of filling
  • Cool whip the top and sides of the entire cake with a thick layer
  • Finally place the 4 remaining whole strawberries on top in any design you like!


When Desiree @ Chic Coastal Living, shared this recipe, I couldn't wait to try it.  I've made it several times now, and my family loves it!  I love how simple and pretty this cake looks, but it is so delicious as well! 

hope your day is amazing!
