Here is the special cake we made for my niece’s birthday party. My sister found the cake and frosting recipes. Both recipes are simple to make; especially the frosting.

I did not try the cake but I heard it was good. I know for a fact the strawberry frosting is incredible! I was in heaven when I tried the frosting, it was all I could do to wash my mixing bowl and stop eating it.

The frosting is light; I love how pink it is from the strawberries.

My sister suggested using this frosting as a fruit dip; I think that would be lovely.

We hope you enjoy this wonderful cake and frosting!
