Easy Strawberry Layer Cake

Well,today I want to prove that I’m over to those breads,so I went and made a strawberry cake.My kids never like too sweet, too dense, and too heavy cake.I tried to make a cake that was more suitable for their taste buds,a simple Strawberry Whipped Cream Cake.It's deceivingly light because the cake is actually make with thin layer of sponge cake and Kraft strawberry whipped cream.That's it!Not even fresh strawberry on it.
My first time using Kraft COOL WHIP with Strawberry flavour.Actually,I am not a big fan of COOL WHIP maybe because it is a Whipped Cream substitute.It's tasteless and very soft.Well,I can say it's taste like ice-cream!But this strawberry flavour isn't as bad as you think.Of course,nothing can compare the real whipped cream which is just so good and perfect for this cake,especially with any kind of berries.
A strawberry cake is perfect for any occasion.When fresh strawberries are in season, be sure and make this cake add with fresh strawberries.Since no special baking skill is required for this cake, even the kids can prepare it easily.The first thing you need to do is to make a sponge cake then make sure the cake is completely cool before you put the cool whip for topping.You don't have to whip the cream.I make a little more to the cake with just piping the melted chocolate directly on to the cake's surface.

End result,a moist and delicious cake for people who like Strawberry flavour.
Enjoy!
