"This elegant dessert is as beautiful as it is delicious," says Brenda Bodnar from Euclid, Ohio. "Not only is it ultra-easy to prepare, but it's a make-ahead recipe, so there's no last-minute fussing when company is coming."

Ingredients

  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 package (12 ounces) frozen sweetened sliced strawberries, thawed and drained
  • Sliced fresh strawberries and mint leaves, optional

Directions

  1. Prepare and bake cake according to package directions, using two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt; gradually stir in milk until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolks; return all to pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in butter and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
  3. Place half of the whipped topping in a large bowl; add strawberries. Cut each cake horizontally into two layers. Place bottom layer on a serving plate; spread with half of the strawberry mixture. Top with a second cake layer; spread with custard. Top with a third cake layer; spread with remaining strawberry mixture. Top with remaining cake layer and whipped topping. Refrigerate overnight. Garnish with strawberries and mint if desired. Yield: 12 servings.

I've been making this for several years now. It makes a very impressive presentation and tastes fantastic! The first time I made it, my brother-in-law ate 5 pieces in one afternoon! It's definitely a keeper!!
