Red, White, And Blue Shortcake Recipe With Cream Cheese
  • Box of yellow cake
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cold
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups heavy whipping cream or heavy cream
  • ½ packet of vanilla instant pudding
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  1. Start by preparing the cake as stated on the box
  2. For the icing, in a large bowl, whip cream with a mixer until it forms stiff peaks.
  3. In another bowl, use a hand mixer to soften the cream cheese, about 30 seconds.
  4. Add sugar, salt, instant pudding and vanilla to the cream cheese and whip until fully combined and creamy. Check a small bit between your fingers to insure sugar crystals have "melted" into the mixture so there is no grittiness.
  5. Fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture then use mixer until it's fully combined and fluffy.
  6. Chill the cake overnight, then split into 4 layers.
  7. Assemble by adding blueberries, strawberries, and frosting in between each layer and onto top.
  8. Chill for another 30 minutes before serving.
