Strawberry Crunch Cake with Cheesecake
  • Sugar– The dry ingredients work together well to form the cream cheese mixture.
  • Heavy cream-  Helps to make the cheesecake layer of the cake. This can be made easily. Just grab up a large bowl and get to mixing. Try keeping things on a low speed.
  • Vanilla Extract-  Brings out the flavor in the layers of strawberry cake. This with the melted butter will have you wanting more.
  • Eggs- I used the egg to help to form the cake layers. I used boxed cake but you can make it from scratch if that’s your desire.
  • Powdered sugar- This helps to form the buttercream frosting. I will have a list of detailed instructions down below.

The full list of ingredients can be found in the recipe card below.
