They say a picture paints a thousand words-in this case we agree! We think this cake looks good enough to eat right off the screen.
Summertime desserts are usually lighter and include some type of ripe, juicy fruit in season. This cake is simple in ingredients and in assembly as well. We guarantee it will be a big hit at your next party or barbecue.
Here’s what you need:
Chocolate cake-either from a box or your favorite homemade recipe
1 pint Whipping Cream (whipped to perfection-add a tsp of vanilla and a couple of tablespoons powdered sugar to sweeten the whipping cream)
2 pints ripe strawberries (washed, sliced, with a squeeze or two of lemon or lime juice over them-add a sprinkle of sugar if needed to make them juicy)
Use two 9 inch cake pans to bake the cake, if you have them, this gives you a slightly thinner cake layer. After you bake and cool your cake layers, simply place one layer on a cake stand, spread the top with a generous amount (1/3 cup) of Nutella, then spread one half of the whipped cream over the Nutella, add half the strawberries, top with the other cake layer and repeat the process.
This cake is made to be consumed the same day-so wow your friends and family at your next event!
