Summer Strawberry Cake

Hi there!! This is my first Works For Me Wednesday. The theme of this week's WFMW is 5 Ingredients or Less.

This is my Strawberry Summer Cake Recipe (ok, I didn't invent it or anything - but I've used it for years so it's mine) - and it's delish!!

Here are the ingredients:
- Boxed White Cake Mix - any brand will work
- 8 ounce cream cheese - low fat if that appeals to you
- 12 ounces Cool Whip
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 carton strawberries

1. First, bake the cake per the boxed directions.
2. Throw the cream cheese into the mixer with the powdered sugar.
3. Slowly add the Cool Whip and fold in by hand.
4. (Optional step: If the top of your cake is very mounded, you may want to slice off the top to make it flat. This will help for the next step.)
5. Spread the mixture on top of the cake.
6. Spread the strawberries over the entire cake.
7. Eat!

This cake is so tasty, easy, and is my favorite summer dessert! Enjoy!!
