Hi there! Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. I got to spend Saturday  night out with my cute hubs and then Sunday I was pampered all day by him and the kids. It was quite nice to wake up to a homemade breakfast that I didn’t cook. ;) While the kids were napping yesterday I decided to bake myself a cake. I love to bake…so why not spoil myself on Mother’s Day?!  Now that strawberries are in season, I wanted to bake something with strawberries {they are my fave!} I have the BEST strawberry cream frosting recipe… the one you want to eat straight from the bowl. It’s SO good!

So I decided to whip up some strawberry cream frosting… and the cake was an after thought…

Yup that’s me eating the frosting straight from the bowl! ;)

I didn’t have all the ingredients to make a cake from scratch, so I used a box mix and it tasted great!  If you’re looking to make your cake from scratch try this recipe here. This cake is definitely all about the frosting! It would taste yummy topped on shortcake as well! Mmm…

White cake w/ strawberry cream frosting


  • 2 pkg white cake make according to pkg directions or use your favorite recipe
  • 1/2 cup seedless strawberry jam
  • 1 cup salted butter (softened, not melted)
  • 1 32 oz pkg powdered sugar
  • 1 cup finely chopped strawberries
  • fresh strawberries to place on top of cake


  1. Bake your white cake in two round pans according to directions and allow to cool. You may want to stick your rounds in the freezer for an hour so it's easier to frost.
  2. For FROSTING: Beat butter until smooth in large bowl. Slowly add about 1/2 of the powdered sugar. Then add the strawberries and mix on low speed. Continue to add the rest of the powdered sugar until you get a smooth consistancy. If it looks too thick add more strawberries. If it's too thin add more powdered sugar.
  3. Once the cakes are cooled spread jam over the first layer. Then add a layer of frosting. You could add a layer of thin strawberries here too. Then carefully add your second layer of cake. Add more frosting to fill in the gaps. Then frost the entire cake.

*please note the frosting is rich a creamy!*

    Oh my gosh Jamielyn, that looks so good! I love strawberries too. Making this on Friday! Thanks for sharing.

    This looks amazing Jamielyn! I’m seriously tempted to make up a small batch of the frosting just so I can eat it by the spoonful. :)

    This looks incredible! My grandmother used to make a strawberry cake that looks just like that icing – yum!

    Hi That cake looks awesome. Am i correct in that you use 2 pkgs of cake mix and use an entire pkg in each layer?

    • Jamielyn

      Thanks Rachelle! Yes I used 1 package for each layer for a nice thick cake. You could divide it into 3 round pans and get a 3 layer cake… which I may do next time. :)

    That looks so good! I’ll have to try your strawberry cream frosting after we’ve gone berry picking. Thanks for sharing.

    An even better strawberry frosting is:
    1 c. strawberries chopped finely
    1 c. sugar
    1 egg white

    Combine strawberries and sugar; let sit for 30 minutes until juices flow. Add egg white. Beat with mixer for 8-10 minutes until stiff peaks form.

    This cake looked so lovely I just had to make it!! However, I had a terrible time with the frosting!! Not the flavor….that was so, so good – but the consistency. I followed your directions to the letter but no matter how much powdered sugar I added it remained too thin. The end result although delicious was a cake decorating nightmare. Any ideas on where I may have gone wrong?

    • Jamielyn

      Hey Maria! The only thing I can think of is maybe the strawberries were too ripe or they were mashed too much watering down the frosting. Mine wasn’t too thick or thin. I hope that helps a little. It is super yummy huh? :) Have a great weekend! xo

    Hello! I found this on Pinterest and am making the frosting tomorrow. Should I refrigerate it?
