If you're looking for a quick and easy dessert this summer to feed the whole family, this is it! (... and it looks really nice, too!) There are times when I want to make strawberry shortcake, but I don't feel like dealing with individual servings.

This is also great to take to your next family gathering or cook-out!

Note: Recipe is for 1 cake mix. Double the ingredients to make the 4-layer cake shown for larger groups. If making the larger cake, use 2 long wooden picks through all 4 layers to hold layers firmly in place.
