No Bake Strawberry Cake

This strawberry tiramisu cake recipe is light as air and literally melts in your mouth thanks to the incredible filling! I love to use home made pastry cream for the filling. It’s super easy to make and so delicious! The cream is then chilled and combined with cream cheese or mascarpone, and whipped cream. Even though this recipe doesn’t have coffee like traditional tiramisu, you’ll still get the flavor of the tiramisu filling.

Watch me make my simple vanilla pastry cream in this ‘Back to Cake Basics’ video recipe. It’s an in-depth guide for making perfect pastry cream for the tiramisu filling.

More Tips!

This no bake cake is the perfect way to use up some summer berries! If you’re making this cake during the off-season, frozen strawberries will also work well. Just thaw them out first!

  • I also recommend using firm/crunchy ladyfingers for this recipe; avoid the soft and cakey ones. Firm lady fingers will hold up better and serve as sturdy cake layers for this no-bake dessert!
  • When making this cake, I recommend letting it set in the refrigerator overnight to allow the tiramisu filling to set properly. This recipe will work well even if made a few days in advance. Just wait to add the sliced strawberry garnish until you’re ready to serve; the strawberries will dry out if left on the cake overnight.
