fresh strawberry cake


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

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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 until you get the right consistency.
  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.
