The Amazing Strawberries & Cream Cake

When I was pregnant with my middle son, Jimmy, I was on bed rest. Of course, I was hungry! So, what did I do? I watched Food Network and read cookbooks to pass the time away! I know, I am crazy. But I really love cooking and of course, absolutely love FOOD! One day, I saw a recipe for a Strawberries and Cream Cake and suddenly I was craving it! I mean, I HAD TO HAVE IT! (Yes, all I did was read the recipe. No picture of the cake. Just the recipe.)

Strawberries & Cream Cake

My sister still laughs when she remembers the day she walked into the house from work and I excitedly told her she was going to help me make this cake. It turned out to be and AMAZING cake! And it is now her annual birthday cake every April.

    This cake is right up my alley. I always requested strawberry cake of some kind when Mom asked what kind of cake we wanted. If I had cream cheese, this would be made today!
