This Strawberry cake with Strawberry Buttercream 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. It is always present for either Thanksgiving or Christmas at our house.
My hubby, Stacy has makes an occasional appearance on the blog. Usually it’s when he makes a yummy recipe like this one!
This 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.

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!
Notice in the picture of the slice just how moist this cake is! This is one of the best cake recipes you will find. Just exactly the right amount of flavor and moistness with the most scrumptious Strawberry Buttercream Frosting!
