HOW TO MAKE FRESH STRAWBERRY CAKE WITH STRAWBERRY BUTTERCREAM | FOOD RECIPES

My oldest daughter turned 17 this month and unlike her mom here, she isn’t a huge fan of chocolate cake. I know, it’s shocking to me too! 😉 She’s just never been one for the chocolate cake and chocolate frosting. Now, she loves peanut butter cups, kisses, and chocolate ice cream, but cake; it’s not her thing.

When we were going over what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday she said “not chocolate.” Ok, I can do that. It may hurt a little, but I can do it. Last year I made a The Best Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting that was to die for. She loved it, but again, the whole chocolate cake thing, not for her. So this year I decided to make her a strawberry cake. However, I didn’t want to make ANY cake with jello to get the strawberry flavor. I wanted real strawberries throughout. I found two recipes that I really liked and combined them to make this Fresh Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Buttercream. It was so good, I didn’t even have one slice left!
