Strawberries yum! Its strawberry season, always make strawberry short cake for the kids and after running around to every store trying to find those little pre made round pound cakes, you know the ones, always sold this time of year in every store along side of the strawberries. Well, finally I realized I just wasn't going to be able find them any where... I then remembered that in one of the stores I had been, a employee had said "Oh you mean those cakes by hostess , we don't have any of them" Which suddenly gave me a brilliant idea, (and rather then bake a homemade cake.) I think Twinkies! that will work! ... They're now called "Cloud Cake" by Little Debbie. Sure enough they work, even better than the little cakes i was looking for. I have come up with this, a yummy desert.
You'll Need: Seves 4
4-6 Cloud Cakes (little Debbies)
1 contanier Cool whip
1 1/2 quarts strawberries,hulled
1 tablespoon strawberry jelly
Few tablespoon water
Clean, slice your strawberries into quarters. In a Medium bowl; whisk 1 tablespoon water and 1 tablespoon strawberry jam until smooth. Add the strawberries to coat; set aside
cut up your cloud cakes about 1 1/2 for each serving
Set aside half of the cut cake, Using the other half of the cut cake; divide equally among 4 serving dishes placing in the bottom, drizzle some of the strawberry juice from the sliced strawberries over the cake.
Fold a few tablespoons of cool whip into the sliced berries;
spoon over the first layer of cake in your serving dishes.
layer the set aside cake over the top of each serving, and then top with cool whip and a strawberry.
The kids loved it!! Even more so than the classic strawberry short cake
