One of my husband’s coworkers loves strawberries apparently and tomorrow is her birthday. So I’m making a cake so filled with strawberries it’ll blow her mind!

Strawberry cake with a strawberry simple syrup infused with mascerated strawberries between the layers. Then I made an italian buttercream for the filling and crumbcoat. I then topped it with a strawberry cream cheese buttercream, a clear strawberry sauce I made, fresh sliced and chocolate dipped strawberries.
Do you think she’ll get her fill of strawberry?? 😉
The frill around the sides is done with a St. Honore’ tip… I need to work on my continuity but I hadn’t used that tip before is my excuse! 😉

What a gorgeous cake. Love the idea! I just bought two packs of fresh strawberries yesterday for the purpose of making cake.

Thanks CD… I thought my cake wasn’t tall enough and wanted to give it more volume. Hence the strawberries! Plus they are pretty!! 🙂
