Banana Cream Cake

This one is a classic Tradition at my house. On your first birthday you get this cake, and it's a mess which kids love, and it's so refreshing and good. It's a great cake for a birthday or anytime, it's a fun change from the traditional frosted cakes, the whipped cream makes it lighter and the bananas add a fun touch as well.

1 Cherry Chip Cake Mix (or other flavor of your choice)
1 pint of Whipping Cream
3-4 ripe bananas

Prepare cake mix according to package and bake in 2 8" round cake pans according to directions on cake mis package. Once cake is cooked, cool completely. While cake is cooling whip your whipping cream adding just enough powdered sugar to make the cream sweet. Then set the first cooled cake round on your serving plate. And scoop a large amount of cream on top of the cake round and using a knife spread it around until it is evenly distributed over the entire cake top. Next slice up your banana's and begin to place them from the outside edge in a circular pattern until you reach the center. Then take the second cake round and place it on top of the first cake round. Place 4-5 toothpicks down thru both cakes to secure them from slipping off each other. Then frost the sides and top with the whipped cream and then place banana's around the edges and top in a like manner. Refrigerate until served. The banana's will tend to brown if left refrigerated for too long. After serving remaining cake may be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
