I made this cake last week for Kevin's family. It was no one's birthday, but I was craving cake - and not the box kind. I used Bake's yellow cake recipe and was amazed at how easy it is to make a cake from scratch. The cake is so much more fluffy and sweet than a box cake, and the extra effort is so worth it. I don't think I will ever make a box cake again.
I then used Martha Stewart's strawberry buttercream frosting. The frosting doesn't spread perfectly, but the taste makes up for how it looks cosmetically. As a girl who loves cake and strawberries, this was the perfect treat for a winding down summer dinner.
