Prepare the Cream
For the cream, mix cream cheese, sugar, and butter until combined. Add frozen strawberries and blend until thick and creamy.
Cut the cake into one-inch squares. Stick one square of cake into a skewer, then add some cream, and stack with a strawberry. Repeat.
Add a bit of milk, one tablespoon at a time, to the remaining cream to create a drizzle sauce.
Assemble before serving.
