I researched making her an Ombre cake for weeks. I was nervous about making the cake but in the end I was pretty pleased with how it came out!
Now we used four different colors instead of the colors being dark on bottom to lightest Sarah wanted them to be all colors! After you make your batter, divide it evenly. I did four layers in a 9 inch cake pan.
Strawberry Cheesecake Mousse Pie
- 1 block cream cheese (8 ounces) at room temperature
- 1 box strawberry jello, divided
- 2/3 cup plus 2 TBSP sugar, divided
- 5 LARGE strawberries
- 4 – 8 ounces Cool Whip, depending on taste and consistency you like
Start by slicing 5 strawberries in a bowl and sprinkle 2 TBSP sugar and 1 tsp strawberry jello powder over top. Stir to coat. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream together cream cheese, 1 TBSP strawberry jello, 2/3 cup sugar. Beat until fluffy.
With a fork, mash the five strawberries that were macerating. Pour into cream cheese mixture. Beat with mixer until well combined. Gently fold in Cool Whip.
