Strawberry Shortcake Mother’s Day Treat

Sharing is caring!

This is a delicious recipe! I love strawberries, cream cheese, and angel food cake so I couldn’t wait to taste it; and it did not disappoint! I wish my mom lived closer because I would definitely be treating her to this!

You can actually refrigerate this recipe and eat it later, which is great because the longer it stays in the fridge the better it tastes, it’s also great for making ahead. I personally love cold desserts!


What Cha’ Need:

1   large angel food cake ( I bought mine ready to serve for $3.30)


For the custard:

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

12 oz of  homemade whipped cream (calls for whipped topping)


For the glaze:

1 cup Stevia (calls for regular sugar)

3 tablespoons cornstarch

3 tablespoons strawberry gelatin (recommended: Jell-O)

1 cup water

2 cups fresh strawberries cut in 1/2 (if berries are extra large, they can be cut into quarters)

Whole fresh strawberries and mint leaves, for garnish

How To Make It:

Slice cake, using a serrated knife, horizontally into 3 equal layers.


For the custard:

Mix together cream cheese, condensed milk, and whipped topping in a bowl; set aside.


For the glaze:

In a medium saucepan, stir together sugar, cornstarch, and gelatin; add water. Cook stirring over medium heat until thick. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. Fold in strawberries.


For assembly:

Place 1 layer of cake in a large clear bowl. Top with a layer of glaze, followed by a layer of custard mixture. Repeat layering in this order for remaining cake, glaze and custard. Top cake with 3 whole fresh strawberries and fresh mint leaves.
