When life gives you lemons ........ you make CAKE!!! Well, at least we do in my house. And since the lemons are metaphorical and strawberries were what I actually had, I decided to make a vanilla cake with strawberry buttercream frosting. Lets all say it together, "YUM".
Thank goodness for pinterest. RIGHT!?!?! That's where I found the recipe for the frosting. And I'm going to let you guys in on a little secret... the cake is from a box. Shh! I added my 3 ingredients to that puppy and popped it in the oven.
Now making it pretty was the hard part. well kinda ~ The roses did most of the work. I just wrapped the rose stems in foil and positioned them where I wanted on the top. The frosting was just swirled on with not much care. Kinda the look I was going for. Add some fresh strawberries between layers and you are good to go.
I think this cake is so pretty you could use for a small wedding ceremony, baby shower, birthday party or wow your neighbors at the summer cook out. Definitely didn't disappoint on flavor and it certainly helped brighten my day.
Who's ready to bake something???
