I am ready for spring. I am ready for flowers, warm weather, sunshine and playing outside with my kids. Strawberries are the fruit I most associate with Spring. We always try to pick strawberries in the spring. The kids love it and then we always get a ton of strawberries to eat plain, usually on the drive home, and to bake with. When I saw this recipe on Pinterest I knew I needed to make it. I have been finding pretty good tasting strawberries in the grocery store so I thought I would give it a try. This cake is easy to prepare. It also is fast and delicious. There is ganache on top of the cake! Can it get any better than that? And it tastes like spring. I cannot wait to see what this cake will taste like with fresh picked strawberries.
If you have been to any sort of function that involved bringing dessert, chances are you have had an icebox cake. They are usually made with graham crackers, pudding mix and cool whip. These cakes are usually the first to go. People love them. And with good reason. This icebox cake takes the typical cake made with pudding mix and cool whip to a whole new level.
There is no cool whip or pudding mix. Instead this recipe uses whipping cream, confectioners sugar and vanilla extract to get the same effect. I love to make my own whipped cream. It’s so easy if you have a stand mixer with a whisk attachment. You just turn it on high, and let it the mixer do the work. Within minutes you have your very own whipped cream.
Did I mention there is ganache on top of the cake? Anything with ganache is great!
