To Assemble the Cake

-Take one layer and place on a serving plate. Layer on strawberry jam, whipped cream. Add the second layer. Frost the rest of the cake with frosting. If you have any leftover whipped cream, you can pipe it decoratively over the top. Decorate the rest of the cake with the garnishes, in any fashion you like. Place Cake in fridge for 1-2 hours to allow to firm up a bit.


** Can also do this as cupcakes (putting about 3-4 tbsp in each cupcake tin) and fill each cupcake with 1 or 2 tbsp of the preserves/jam and then frost
