Strawberry Shortcake Dessert!

 This dessert is AWESOME!  That is all I have to say about it!  Make it...you will love it!  Of course I found the original recipe on Pinterest and it was pinned from http://reallifedinner.com/raspberry-shortcake-dessert/

Strawberry Shortcake Dessert
1 Box White Cake Mix (+ingredients to make the cake)
1 (4.75 oz) Package Danish Dessert
1 (8 oz) Cream Cheese, softened
½ cup powdered sugar
1 (8 oz) package Cool Whip
3-4 cups fresh berries
DIRECTIONS:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake cake according to package instructions. Use a large 13×18 lightly greased cookie sheet to bake it in. Mine only took 12 minutes to cook. It should take 12-15 min. When toothpick placed in center comes out clean you know it is done.  Let cake cool completely. 
In a sauce pan, combine contents of the Danish Dessert with 1¾ cup cold water. Put on medium high heat and stir continuously until mixture comes to a boil, Boil for 1 minute or until mixture thickens.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.  You can place in fridge (place on a hot pad). 
While the berry topping is cooling combine softened cream cheese and powdered sugar with a hand mixer.  Mix in Cool Whip and carefully spread onto cake. 
Next, place fresh cut berries on top of cheesecake layer.  Check to see if the Danish Dessert mixture has cooled off. Don’t leave it in the fridge too long or it will set up. It doesn’t have to be completely cool to add to the cake, you just don’t want it to be hot or it will melt the cheesecake layer.
Spread the glaze topping evenly over the cheesecake layer and put entire dessert in the fridge for at least two hours or overnight. Keep Refrigerated.
