Dee's Strawberry Short Cake
2 boxes dream whip( prepare 3 paks)
1 box of white cake mix
2lbs fresh cleaned strawberries
1 small jar strawberry preserves
Prepare cake mix according to directions in round 9 inch cake pans, cool cake layers on wire rack.
Make entire box of dream whip, both packages.
Now assemble the cake.
Layer one, place on a nice cake plate. Then smear with a generous amount of the strawberry preserves on top. Now put a layer of dream whip, place a layer of sliced strawberries on top.repeat with next layer. Top with remainder of dream whip. Arrange lots of the strawberries, whole and halves on the top of the cake. Refrigerate cake. When ready to serve, remove from fridge about 15 minutes before slicing.
It's a nice big cake, light and refreshing. You could use real whipped cream, however the dream whip holds up nicely, and gosh but his is a good cake!
We used to go strawberry picking at the "Doneteachin" Farm in Howard County Maryland. The farm is now a housing development, just a memory. But the cake lives on!!! Enjoy!
