3 Reasons Why this Strawberry Cheesecake Cake is the Best Cake Ever

It's Sweet to Share!

Strawberry Cheesecake Cake is one of my favorite desserts. This cake is made up of 5 distinct layers; 2 of the most fluffy white cakes you’ll ever eat, 1 in the center of a deliciously smooth cheesecake, and 2 more of sliced strawberries to sweeten every single morsel of this beautiful cake.

3 Reasons Why this Strawberry Cheesecake Cake is the Best Cake Ever

Just look at it.

Strawberry Cheesecake Cake

#1. This is the Best White Cake You Will Ever Eat

This cake is white and fluffy like clouds. If you pressed it between your fingers it would just float away. 

I have never in my life tasted a cake this good before. 

Don’t confuse this white cake with angel food sponge cake. Angel food cake is spongy. The sugar crystallizes to the egg whites creating a meringue cake, but it still has a density to it where each bite requires chewing. 

This white fluffy cake is like cotton candy. It’s super yummy with a great flavor that tastes like pure sweetened milk.

#2. Strawberry Cheesecake Cake is Absolutely Beautiful

The only thing that could make this cake more beautiful would be more red strawberries. I made this at the beginning of the season, but as summer gets closer, the color of the strawberries in this cake will just get better and better.

Each layer of this cake looks like a flowering petal. The strawberries form a skirt around the cake so instead of covering it with frosting, leave it naked so the strawberries peek out from each layer. 

The contrasting colors of white, golden brown and red together create an elegant centerpiece and beg to be eaten!

#3. It Tastes like Strawberries and Cream with Cake

The strawberries germinate in the whipped cream frosting of this cake and within a half hour start to leak out their juices. The juices begin seeping into each layer of cake, frosting and cheesecake and then blend together to make a delicious cake that is both delicious separate and together.

  6. Cover the cake with a thick layer of frosting and then sliced strawberries starting from the outer edge and moving inward. 
  7. Place frozen cheesecake upside down over the layer of strawberries.

Can This Cake Keep Overnight?

Unfortunately not really. The strawberries will begin to seep until they are soggy, which will also spread to the cake.

This cake is best eaten with 6 hours of making.

How Do You Decorate a Cake with Fresh Strawberries?

There are several ways to decorate a cake with fresh strawberries.

In this strawberry cheesecake cake, I opted for freshly sliced strawberries without the stems.

You can also keep the stems on, and slice the strawberries almost to the top. By leaving the stem on, you create a fan shape when the strawberries spread out.

Another way is to slice the strawberries and douse them in sugar. After they have created a syrup, you can pour that over your cake. This method is popular with angel food cake.

I love plain old dark metal baking plans. The ones with the thick outer rim are the best.

Plus, a matching 9″ springform pan. This one comes with precut parchment paper liners!

And a nice set of hand beaters.

Personally, I don’t like using a stand mixer for frosting. Hand beaters are so quick and easy, you can be done with the frosting in the time it takes to get all the parts attached to your mixer.
