Strawberry Shortcake Dessert a/k/a You'll Never Eat S.S In Those Little Yellow Cake Cups Again

Here ya'all go, the one, the only, the original Strawberry Shortcake Dessert.
Once you eat it, you'll never want to go back to eatin' those little yellow cake cups things again...for real.

Just so you know, this is easy..it has to be, I am not a kitchen/cooking person and this makes Sara Lee's "Almost Homemade" show look like work.

This is what you'll be making....



This is what you'll need from the store..

One pre-made angel food cake
A bunch of strawberries
A big tub of Cool Whip {let it sit in the fridge until it's thawed out}
One container of strawberry glaze {sold where the strawberries are}
One block of cream cheese {I know, sounds gross but you'll never taste it..believe me}

This is your prep...

Cut up the angel food cake into bit sized chunks and set aside.
Slice strawberries and set aside.
With an electric mixer, mix the cream cheese and about 1/3 of the strawberry glaze until you get a really pretty raspberry shade of pink, set that aside.

This is how you put it together...

In a pretty big bowl {clear bowls look best...but mine had broke so I used what I had that didn't have leftovers in it}

Layer...

Angel food cake chunks
Blobs of cream cheese/glaze mixture
Drizzle or spoon over the extra strawberry glaze.
Cool Whip
Strawberries

**It really doesn't matter how you layer...it's all good**

Keep going until you get to the top and have used up everything {except of course, for those few pieces of cake and strawberries that you just couldn't help swipe when nobody was looking}

End with the last two layers being Cool Whip and Strawberries on the very top.

Cover with plastic wrap and stick it in the fridge for at least 4 hours.

Take it out, scoop it up and enjoy!!!!

Let us know how you love it and have yourselves a BEAUTIFUL day!!!!

Thanks for sharing your recipe, Kim! I don't like the little yellow cup-cake thingies, either. Therefore, I don't eat strawberry shortcake very often. i love cream cheese, so your recipe sounds delicious! Can't wait to try it!

Can't wait to try this, but I will probably wait for a special occasion or I will eat the entire thing.

Sounds delicious! This is very similar to English Trifle! Only we use raspberries and real whipped cream and custard and (douse with liquer) and eat it after Christmas dinner!
