A friend of mine in Oregon made my Strawberry cake. She loved it! She made it again and folded whipped cream into the frosting and said it was scrumptious. We have house guests and so I decided to try her method. I doubled it though, cuz there is so many people. I made two sheet cakes and put the original frosting in the middle, then I made whipped cream and folded it into the rest of the frosting. She was right. It was SO good!! Thanks Coppi!
