Kim’s Yummy Cake


You can pick up the best recipes at baby & bridal showers, don’t you think?  That’s where I got this yummy, fresh recipe from my friend Kim, who used to work for a caterer.  Just sayin’.  

I just recently made this for a Cinco de Mayo-themed church dinner because it LOOKS like a tres leches cake.  Do not be fooled into thinking it will be oozing with all those milks in it, but it is still very good.

My favorite topping is a combination of fresh strawberries, mango and kiwi.  I tried to use mango on this one, but it was just way too ripe.  I guess I could have put shredded mango on there…nah.  The blueberries were a nice substitute.

And please don’t use canned frosting.  Ew.

  1. 1 white cake mix

  3. 8 oz. (1 cup) of powdered sugar
  4. 8 oz. Cool Whip
  5. Fresh fruit for topping--suggested: mango, strawberries, kiwi
  1. Make cake according to directions on the box. Don't over bake! Cool completely.
  2. Mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar and Cool Whip until well blended, then spread on cake.
  3. Done!
  1. I have always made this in a glass 9 x 13 pan. But wouldn't it look cool as a naked layer cake with the frosting in between layers and on top and then the fruit? Yeah, I think so.
