"This is an awesome cake! Place fresh strawberries on top of frosting for decoration if you like. I suggest to allow the strawberries (for the frosting) to drain for a few hours in a strainer after mashing. NO MORE than 3/4 cup or the frosting will be too runny"

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease three 9 inch round pans. Set pans aside.

I made this for my 3 year olds birthday and it was so delicious, that I ended up serving the whole thing to guests and there was none left for a second piece, which I was looking so forward to. Guess you know I will be making another one this week, before it gets too hot here! Loved the frosting and the cake tastes incredible!!!

Definitely worthy of more stars! This cake is so good, one probably won't be enough to satisfy all the sweet tooths in our family! So delicious with that amazing frosting and tender crumb. I decorated with strawberry slices and chocolate covered strawberries. It was a masterpiece before the eyes for my DD's 46th Birthday!

This is one of the best cakes I have eaten! It is not only beautiful to look at, it has superb flavor, and is moist as well. Gorgeous presentation with some strawberries cut, and fanned out around the edge of the cake. Perfect for a Birthday Cake too!
