This simple and utterly delicious 13x9 strawberry shortcake cake is the epitome of summer, and we just can’t seem to get enough of it. Start with a box of Betty’s buttery yellow cake mix and watch this summertime sensation come to life. Once the cake is perfectly golden brown, layer with a homemade cream cheese frosting and top with sweetened strawberries. The combination of the fluffy topping and juicy berries makes for a crowd-friendly dessert you can bet will star at any potluck.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Use can also use white cake mix for this recipe.
  • tip 2
    Instead of using strawberry glaze, try topping with macerated strawberries. This easy technique starts with slicing strawberries and mixing them with a few tablespoons of granulated sugar. Stir occasionally and you’ll start to notice the berries releasing their juices. For best results, let stand at room temperature for up to 30 minutes. Top your strawberry shortcake sheet cake with the macerated berries and enjoy!
