Strawberry Trifle

This is a great dessert to use up some of those summer strawberries.
1 box strawberry cake
2 tubs whipped cream
1 1/2 pints strawberries

Bake cake according to package directions in a 9x13 in. pan.
While cake is cooking, thaw whipped cream and slice strawberries in half lengthwise.
When cake has cooled cut in half across middle and down the length, then cut each section into 1 in wide pieces about 3 in long (think lady fingers). Next use half the cake to layer the bottom of your trifle dish. Using a rubber spatula, spread the whipped cream over the cake, trying to get it into the crevices of the cake. You should not be able to see the cake on top through the whipped cream. Next top with strawberriess. Add a thin layer of whipped cream. Add another layer of cake, then whipped cream, topping it off with the strawberries.

This dessert looks beautiful and tastes delicious. I wish I had a picture, but I set it on the table and turned around to get my camera and in the moment I had my back turned, it had been divided down to the last dollop of whipped cream and everybody was eating. Maybe next time, or you could just make it yourself to see.
