How to Make Strawberry Shortcake w/Whipped Cream Cheese Frosti


  1. First you need to preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Spray THREE 9 x 1 1/2-inch round pans with cooking spray or grease with butter.
  3. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder & the salt until well combined.
  4. Add the milk, vegetable oil, butter & the vanilla to the flour mixture and Mix VERY well
  5. (Recommend using an electric mixer), but you can do it by hand, just be sure its completely mixed.
  6. Finally, add in the eggs & continue mixing until well combined
  7. Pour batter into your greased pans and bake at 350F for 17 to 22 minutes OR until a tooth pick comes out clean when inserted.
  8. for the Strawberry filling:
    Chop up 3/4 of the package of strawberries,r in a large mixing bowl, sprinkle the set aside 1/4 cup of powdered sugar on top of the chopped strawberries & add half a teaspoon of water and mix gently until well combined, set to the side.
  9. Be sure to cool the cakes completely prior to frosting or adding the strawberries.
  10. 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.
  15. Frost the cooled cakes (I left the sides exposed because it gives it a nice look)
  16. 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.
  17. Lastly, Enjoy!
