Communion Strawberry Shortcake

This was a last minute order for a communion cake. She wanted a strawberry shortcake and didn't care what it said on it. It was for her son's communion. The cake is a yellow butter cake baked in 1/2 sheet pan. I cut it in half to stack it. The filling is fresh strawberries mixed with sugar and some corn syrup. I piped sweetened whipped cream around the edge of the cake to hold the filling in. The cake is coated with the same whipped cream. I used a cross cookie cutter to leave a pattern on the whipped cream so I could use a star tip to make the blue cross.

1) Whipped cream is much softer than buttercream and takes a gentler hand to pipe.
2) When able use cookie cutters to leave your pattern lines.
