Strawberry Cream Cake

July 9, 2011 § 1 Comment

Unlike most people, I have an unlimited tolerance for cake frosting.   I can eat gobs of it.  It’s gross.  I secretly love those people who scrape off their frosting because they often are so willing to give up their frosting to people like me.  And then, I’m able to load more frosting onto my already frosted slice of cake, turning it into some sort of butter cream bomb.

So that said, I tend to prefer cake with butter cream or cream cheese frosting over other types of cake toppings. But then there’s this cake.  This is the third time I’ve made it, and I never tire of it.  I love it because it’s essentially strawberry shortcake for a crowd.  It’s everything one expects strawberry shortcake to be without the individual plating. I follow Martha’s recipe exactly, except this time I added lemon zest to the cake batter (about 2 tsp).  It totally made the whole dessert come together, you must must make this addition.

With that, I’m off to enjoy my third slice of cake within a 24 hour period.  Hope your weekend involves some cake too.
