When I first started thinking about what to make for my daughters birthday cake, I knew I wanted it to be something fun and fruity. I also knew I wanted it to be 2 layers and look beautiful. Once I decided on a theme for the party, the decision was simple. I made this strawberry cake with lemonade frosting to go along with our strawberry lemonade theme, and I think it turned out perfect.
Really I kept going between a lemon cake with strawberry frosting or a strawberry cake with lemonade frosting. I finally asked my mom what she would like and this was her decision. She made a good choice! The frosting on this cake could be eaten with a spoon, no need for cake! It’s really good. And the added lemon zest on the top, was a last minute decision that turned out to be just perfect! And the addition of the fresh strawberries in a boxed strawberry cake mix made it taste from scratch.
It was the perfect centerpiece to our party table. Plus being that I love more fruity flavors over chocolate, I really loved this cake. And I wasn’t the only one! Which is always a plus. 😉
