Strawberry Layer Cake Recipes

Updated on April 5, 2013

Strawberry Layer Cakes For Spring

The perfect herald of the Spring season: a softly sweet and lightly moist strawberry layered cake is the ideal dessert to brighten up the end of any meal. That's why I've decided to aggregate some of the yummiest strawberry layered cake recipes on the web in one location. For instructions, make sure you follow the links! I show the ingredients so you can decide if you have the right supplies on hand or are able to get them; obviously many will feature fresh strawberries either for embellishment or an actual part of the cake, but a few only call for frozen strawberries, jams, or other less seasonal ingredients.

I'll continue to add recipes with time, so be sure to check back!

Strawberries and Cream - Delicious and Artistic Presentation

Ingredients. Serves 8-12

1 (18 1/2 ounce) package of white cake mix

10 ounces of frozen strawberries, thawed and pureed

1 (12 ounce) frozen whipped topping, thawed

1 cup fresh strawberries, cleaned, hulled and sliced

I love how easy the directions are: packaged cake mix makes this no fuss with minimal muss. When cutting cake layers, you can use a violin string (A or E, preferably) or thin guitar string stretched taut. If you're slow and careful it does a pretty good job. If you need an endless supply of broken E strings, sponsor a violin student.

You could also just use one of these, but where's the fun in that?

 

Use a large round cookie or biscuit cutter to shape your layers of cake, then stack for some serious visual delish.

This recipe has a more personal touch, no box mixes means you can say "homemade" with an extra touch of pride. Grab a lot of extra strawberries for adding to the served slices, I know I can't get enough of them!

The title says strawberry, but any berry mix is sure to be a tasty treat.

An incredible visual display, not to mention a yummy refreshing desert. Commenters note that this works great with other berries and fruits as well, like blueberries, raspberries, and even kiwis. Pecans add a delightful touch and mascarpone cheese provides a final nuance to the flavor profile.
