Strawberry Cake Lemon Buttercream Frosting!!!

Strawberry Cake Lemon Buttercream Frosting is probably the best cake EVER!! Sweet and Tangy, such an amazing combination.

Last year I made my sister some Strawberry Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream Frosting… they were AWESOME!  Since she loved the cupcakes so much I decided to me her a ”cake” version of the cupcakes for her birthday.

There’s just something wonderful about the combination of the sweetness of the strawberries with the sour taste of lemons.

    You’ve got my brain juices flowing… I’m making a princess birthday cake for my daughter’s 3rd birthday next week. She wants a blue princess, but she’s be so excited about a PINK cake! These flavors would also entice the grown-ups to eat a bit too, and I already have all the ingredients in my pantry. Thanks!
