This multi layered Strawberry Shortcake Cake is made with a simple yellow cake, filled with cream cheese whipped topping, and topped with fresh strawberries that are sweet and perfectly ripe. This cake is very easy to make and a perfect cake for the summer!
Okay, I know what you’re thinking. You’re so happy I made this recipe for you just in time for the summer, right? Although this isn’t the Strawberry Shortcake with the biscuit that we all enjoy, it is still satisfying and a refreshing dessert for the summer. This Strawberry Shortcake Cake is crazy easy to make and a perfect dessert recipe for beginners who want to make a good impression.
Shortcake v. Biscuit
Deciding which is better between the shortcake versus the biscuit really is going to be based on personal preference. The Shortcake Cake is a simple yellow cake recipe that is made with a few simple and basic baking ingredients such as:
- Vanilla Extract
Making this cake recipe is incredibly easy. You are going to follow the instructions and go through making a cake as you normally would. A newly discovered technique that takes this cake to the moon and back is adding warm milk. That’s a new technique to me! I promise I will be adding warm milk to my cakes from now on. I feel that it makes the cake extra moist and buttery. Out of the three times, I have made this cake, it has come out the same way each and every time. I’m anxious to hear what you guys think about it. Once the cake is baked and cooled, you will have a soft and moist yellow cake that melts in your mouth.
The biscuit on the other hand is a soft and buttery dense cut of bread that goes along perfectly with the whipped cream and fresh strawberries. It’s soft in a unique way but different from the cake. So with that being said I only have one question

Enjoying this Strawberry Shortcake Cake
What I love about this Strawberry Shortcake Cake recipe is how you get an even serving of all the ingredients in this recipe. Unlike traditional Strawberry Shortcake, sometimes I run out of strawberries before I’m done with the cream and sometimes I’m out of the cream before I’m out of the biscuit. Making this Strawberry Shortcake Cake recipe gives me the satisfaction of enjoying every ingredient in every bite.
