Ingredients
Cake:
1 box white or French Vanilla cake mix
3/4 cup strawberry preserves
1/8 teaspoon red food coloring
2 cups heavy cream, chilled
3/4 cup confectioner's sugar
Frosting:
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons milk
Decoration:
12 medium to large strawberries, stems removed and halved
1/4 cup strawberry preserves
Directions
Grease and flour three 9-inch round cake pans. Preheat oven to temperature recommended on package. Prepare cake mix per package directions, decreasing water by 1/3 cup and adding preserves and food coloring. Divide batter evenly between pans. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. It will take 5 to 10 minutes less time than listed on package because layers are thinner. Cool 10 minutes in pan on wire rack. Turn out onto wire rack to cool completely . Cream together cream cheese and milk until smooth. Gradually, add heavy cream and whip to soft peaks, scraping bowl as needed. Add confectioner's sugar gradually, whipping to stiff peaks. Assemble and frost cake. Place strawberry halves evenly around base and outer edge of cake top of berry to bottom and outside respectively. Drizzle preserve, warmed slightly if necessary, over berries on top of cake.
