DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO BAKE STRAWBERRY CRUNCH CAKE

Preheat oven to 350°. Line four 8” round cake pans with parchment paper and grease with cooking spray or butter.

Prepare each cake mix according to package instructions. Divide between prepared pans, making two vanilla cakes and two strawberry cakes.

Bake according to package instructions. Remove from oven and let cakes cool in pans for  about 10 minutes. Turn onto wire racks to cool completely.

 

MAKING FROSTING:

Using a hand mixer, beat butter and about half of the powdered sugar until smooth.

Add the remaining powdered sugar, vanilla and 4 tablespoons heavy cream and beat until fluffy. Add more cream if the mixture is too stiff.

 

MAKING STRAWBERRY CRUNCH:

In a large Ziploc bag, crush freeze-dried strawberries and Nilla Wafers using a rolling pin. Add butter to bag and toss until the mixture is evenly combined.
