cake from scratch! (You can use box mix if your in a rush)

Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting Instructions
Combine the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract in a large bowl or into a stand mixer bowl
11
If using a stand mixer, use the whisk attachment and mix on Med till creamy.
12
While the mixture is still whipping, slowly pour in heavy cream.
13
Remember to scrape the bottom of the bowl a few times in between mixing.
14
Continue mixing until slightly sturdy texture.

Frost the cooled cakes (I left the sides exposed because it gives it a nice look)

One by one frost the top of the cakes and spoon the strawberry mixture on top of the frosting of each layer until you reach the top where the last 1/4 of the strawberries can either be chopped up and sprinkled on top of slice them and place them on top.
