Thursday, July 11, 2013

If you're on the hunt for a fresh, summertime dessert to take to a cookout or one to serve up to a hungry house at home, I made this over the 4th of July weekend and it was a big hit! A bit tart, but yummy and delish!

Box of Strawberry Cake Mix (plus oil, water and eggs as directed on box)
8 oz. Cream Cheese (softened to room temp.)
1 packet (0.23oz.) of Kool-Aid Lemonade
Yellow food coloring gel (as desired for color)
2 cups Marshmallow Creme
8 oz. Cool Whip
Fresh Strawberries to Garnish

a. Make cake according to box and bake in two/9 inch round cake pans. Turn finished cakes over on cake racks and allow to cool completely.
b. Mix together cream cheese, lemonade, and yellow food coloring until smooth.
c. Mix marshmallow creme in and Cool Whip until completely smooth. Refrigerate until cake is cooled and cut.
d. Cut each cake layer in half. Alternating layers of cake with layers of filling, assemble cake. End with layer of filling.
e. Top with sliced strawberries. Refrigerate and serve chilled.
