Strawberry Cream Cake Recipe

This Strawberry Cream Cake Recipe is so yummy, and is also super easy to make! We made it with just strawberries, but a few blueberries placed strategically in the upper left corner…and I’m thinking great July 4th cake!



  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 8 ounces cream cheese block
  • 1 small tub Cool Whip
  • 1- 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Containers of Fresh Strawberries (I only got one and ran out)


Step 1: Prepare white cake as directed and let cool completely.

Step2: Mix together cream cheese, cool whip and powdered sugar in a mixing bowl until creamy and smooth. Spread frosting onto cake top.


Step 3: Wash strawberries and remove stems.


Step 4: Slice strawberries, we used an egg slicer, works great for kids!


Step 5: Add 1 tsp to strawberries and stir well. Refrigerate until ready to serve. This allows sugar to dissolve strawberries and creates a yummy juice. This step can be skipped if you prefer a less juicy topping.


Step 6: When ready to serve, top cake with sliced strawberries.


Step 7: Slice a piece of this yummy cake and enjoy!


Hope you enjoy this yummy delight!

    We make a similar cake, but we put the strawberries 9(with a little sugar added) on top of the warm cake. We also have two layers of "icing". The first layer is made from cream cheese, vanilla pudding, and a little milk. Then we top it with whipped cream or cool whip. So, so yummy. Think I'll make one tomorrow – thanks!

    THANKS! I used this for my mom’s bday since she loves berries and her bday was July1st. It doubled for her bday and the 4th weekend. I used blueberries and strawberries to make flower designs. Everyone loved it so much that when I asked my husband what cake he would like for his bday (July29) he said a repeat!! Quick and easy and yummy! The egg slicer idea was great for us too!!!Thanks again! Althought now I am wondering if this will be the only cake they ever want. lol
