My fiance and I both LOOOOOVE strawberry shortcake for dessert, so we are thinking about having a strawberry shortcake wedding cake… I want layers of pound cake covered in whipped cream frosting with strawberries all over, but I may just do 1 layer to cut into with the rest fake, then pass out SSC made with biscuits.
What do you think? Has anyone ever seen one? Do you think it would go over well?

It sounds very yummy. Unfortunately, I have not done this. My suggestion is to be careful with the whipped cream if you are having an outdoor wedding as it can melt.

I haven’t seen one like that, but it sounds delicious! Our cake is going to be vanilla with strawberries sandwhiched in the middle. The only concern I would have is that the whipped cream may melt, but I’m sure if you talk to a baker about your idea they can give you a better perspective on whether or not this will work or offer a great alternative.

AHHHH, I’m having this too!!! My caterer said they’ve done it before and it looks so pretty with lots of layers of red and white! I’m so excited, it will be strawberry season where I live for the wedding, so everything’s going to be local and fresh and yum! I think it’s a great idea 🙂 I think either way of doing it (1 big cake or one little one and passing out little ones with a biscuit) will work beautifully!

Yum! Could you have a cake station, where the slices are garnished with whipped cream and strawberries?

I think this would be super yummy. Like Beagle suggested, you might just want to double check with your baker to make sure the whipped cream will stand up the whole time. Great idea!

It sounds delicious! =) I’d go with the “fake cake”, though, if you want the cake on display for a while, or if you’re having an outdoor wedding, because whipped cream needs to be kept in the fridge.

agree with pp’s! sounds AMAZING, just make sure you discuss with your baker about the logistics!

we’re doing that too! except it’s supposedly french style so it’s called a frasier. the baker is covering it with fondant so it will hold better. he’s going to make 4 layers of it. it’s one of his standard flavors so i think it should hold up pretty well. it just can’t be on display for hours on end.

Do you live in an area where you are close to an Asian or Chinese bakery?
We are getting a strawberry cake for our wedding cake. It has fresh strawberries and whipped cream frosting on the inside. I am not doing anything fancy to the cake. The bakery is just going to give me a plain layered cake and we are going to add fresh flowers. The plus to all of this is that everyone loves the cake and the price is super affordable. I think I am going to pay less than $300 to feed 200 people.
