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.
What do you think? Looks yummy doesn’t it?
There’s just something wonderful about the combination of the sweetness of the strawberries with the sour taste of lemons.
