Moist Strawberry Cake

My family requests this cake over all others. The longer it is in the fridge the more moist it becomes. The only problem is that it does not last long. Hope you will enjoy making this as much as I do, and that your family considers it one of their favorites too!!!

Oh my gosh, this is the mother of all strawberry cakes. It's cool, rich, refreshing and six layers of yummy flavors. We loved the mixture of cream cheese and whipped cream layers. They taste amazing and aren't overly rich. The cake itself is moist, but when the fresh strawberries are incorporated it makes the cake even better. This cake tastes like a delicious strawberry shortcake.

Tip: Cutting cakes can be difficult. Before slicing the cakes, place the cooled cakes in plastic wrap and stick in the fridge for about an hour. The harder the cake, the easier it is to slice. The Test Kitchen
