Strawberry Shortcakecake Recipe @pinch

An easy semi havehomemade cake that tastes as it came from a bakery! The vanilla cake is moist and the strawberries soak into the cake. The strawberries add a fresh and fruity flavor. Mixing frosting with Cool Whip really lightens up the frosting and takes the sweetness down a little. We love the layer of strawberry preserves on the cake. Adds the overall strawberry flavor. A wonderful summer dessert. My best friend loves strawberry shortcake. I love cake and love to make special cakes. I developed this combination just for her and now everyone at work loves it and I have even been hired to make it for a few people over the years.
