Learn How To Make Strawberry Shortcake

How To Make Strawberry Shortcake (courtesy of Howcast.com)

Strawberry shortcake doesn’t have to be cake on a plate. Turn this fruity favorite into something you really want to sink your teeth into! You will need:

One angel food cake
One 8 ounce package of cream cheese
A 14 ounce can of condensed milk
A 12 ounce container of whipped topping
1 cup of sugar
3 tablespoons of cornstarch
3 tablespoons of strawberry gelatin
1 cup of water
2 cups of fresh strawberries, quartered
A large glass bowl
5 whole strawberries

Optional: Light or fat-free cream cheese, condensed milk and whipped topping.

Step 1: Slice the angel food cake crosswise, into 3 equal sections. Make your own angel food cake with a box mix, or buy one in your grocery store.

Step 2: Mix together the cream cheese, condensed milk and whipped topping, then set the mixture aside. Lighten up your dessert by using light or fat-free ingredients.

Step 3: Stir together the sugar, cornstarch and gelatin in a saucepan over medium heat. Add water, stir until it thickens and fold in the strawberries.

Step 4 – Place one layer of the cake in the bottom of your glass bowl. Top it with a third of the glaze from your saucepan, followed by a third of the cream cheese mixture. Repeat all of this 2 more times.

Step 5 – Top your dessert with whole strawberries. Chill for an hour, and then dig in!

Did you know? The average strawberry has 200 seeds!
