Stacy’s Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Butter Cream Frosting

This Strawberry cake with Strawberry Butter Cream frosting is the most requested cake in our family.

Although we tend to associate Strawberry recipes with the summer months, you will want this recipe for year round occasions. 

My hubby, Stacy has made several appearances on the blog before. He surprised me when he wrote this, An Introspective Look at 40 Things I Learned in 40 Years post. He also wrote is own point of view in this post about our age difference, The Truth About Our Age Difference. 

I think you will agree with me that his recipes are always worth talking about!

Stacy's Strawberry Cake recipe can be found at www.intelligentdomestications.comThis passed holiday season, he made this cake twice. The second time was a special request from his mother which is when he made the 2 layer cake. (Yes! My husband is such a sweetheart, he bakes for his mother!) The 3 layer cake in the photo’s is from Thanksgiving 2014. 

I hope you enjoy this recipe!

Because we were so very busy preparing for the Thanksgiving meal, I didn’t really take the time to make good blog worthy pictures, sorry. I did feel that I simply had to take a slice picture, the day after Thanksgiving using my beautiful Christmas cactus as a prop. I have no idea why the Christmas cactus always blooms at Thanksgiving but it does!
