Cake Again?

Hello dear friends! Looking back over my posts for the last couple of weeks, you might get the impression that this is a baking blog what with all the cupcake fanfare and layer cake love, so continuing with that trend I thought I would give you a peek at the dessert we had for Mother's Day. This is "Simply Delicious Strawberry Cake" from the May/June 2008 issue of Cooking with Paula Deen. If you are a fan of strawberries, you will love this cake! It is so moist and the to die for icing is even low cal. since it only has a half a stick of butter rather than Paula's requisite one stick minimum. LOL! I had to kick the color of the frosting up a notch with the help of some pink Wilton concentrated paste. If the sugar from the cake doesn't give you a buzz, the pink dye will! Hope you all had a sweet weekend too!

Yum! I'd love a slice of it with a glass of coke right now! I swiped my moms latest issue of Paula's waiting on my nightstand! Hope you had a nice Mothers Day.
