Total Time 1hour15minutes
1boxwhite cake mix
8ouncescream cheese, softened
8ounces cool whip topping
1boxstrawberry danish dessert (found near the jello and pudding items)
1 3/4cupscold water
2poundsstrawberries, hulled and sliced
Follow instructions on the cake mix box to prepare the cake in a 9x13 inch pan. Discard 1/2 cup of the prepared batter (you could use this to make 3-4 small cupcakes) and stir poppy seeds into the remaining batter. Bake according to box directions (take it out a few minutes early because there is slightly less batter). Allow cake to cool.
Whisk together cold water and strawberry danish mix. In a medium sauce pan bring mixture to a boil. Boil, whisking constantly, for one minute. Remove from heat and stir strawberries into the mixture. Allow to cool.
While danish mixture and cake are cooling, prepare the whipped cream layer. In a larger bowl mix cream cheese, whipped topping, and powdered sugar together until smooth and fluffy.
Spread whipped topping over cake. Spread strawberry mixture over whipped cream layer. Chill at least 1-2 hours before serving.
