For my birthday this year, I wanted a cake that I had over 15 years ago, yes I still remember it because it was that good! It’s super easy and quick to make. We made it after diner and 30 minutes (little one’s help tends to delay things, lol) later we were having it. Nico helped with pretty much every step and here is how we did it:
Nico insisted on washing and cutting all the strawberries, but did let papa help a little. It was his first time cutting them, the tail was a little hard to cut with the icing spatula so papa did that after he tried one. Slicing them in half he did a really good job, papa did the rest while I took pics.
Alex drained the crushed pineapples and Nico put those in as well as the whipped topping. He also tried it for the first time, then he mixed away. Sorry for the rather close up pics but I was holding the bowl while taking pics.
The cake is very fresh and delicate so the next steps were mostly a grown up job. Cut the cake in half horizontally, apply a little whipped topping mix on the bottom half and pile on the strawberries (that was Nico’s job, as well as eating the fallen pieces of cake), put a little more whipped mix on the inside of the top half and sandwich it all together. Take the rest of the whipped mix and spread it all over your cake, you can also fill the hole if you have enough, we sure did.
