Prep time is just 10 minutes for this easy summer mix of strawberries, light frozen whipped topping, prepared strawberry topping and pound cake.


  • 1 quart strawberries (about 4 cups), hulled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 8 - ounce container light frozen whipped topping (such as Cool Whip Lite), thawed
  • 1/3 cup prepared strawberry topping (such as Smuckers)
  • 1 store-bought 13-ounce marbled pound cake (such as Entenmanns), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Strawberries for garnish, optional


  1. In a large bowl, mix together strawberries and sugar. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. In a medium-size bowl, stir together the whipped topping and strawberry topping. Place half of the cake cubes in a large glass bowl. Spoon half of the berries and accumulated juices evenly over the cake. Spread half of the topping mixture over the berries. Repeat layering. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
  3. Garnish with additional strawberries, if desired.

I couldn't find chocolate marbled pound cake but did find strawberry marbled cake, so I used that. I also used two containers of cool whip because it didn't seem like one container was enough.
