Let me start by saying, I’m a boxed cake kind of gal! Actually, when it comes to cakes and brownies, I rarely make ’em from scratch. A boxed mix is just too easy! After seeing this Vanilla Cake with Strawberry Cream Frosting from Bon Appetit (May 2009), I thought I would venture outside of my comfortable cake mix box and go for it. I am so glad that I did because this is the best cake I have ever made! Seriously, when I served it to my family, they all thought it tasted better than what you buy at a bakery. Plus, even though it requires quite a few ingredients, it really isn’t all that hard to make!
The cake was moist and perfect and the frosting was delicious! I’m not normally good at making homemade frosting either. I almost always use a can because normally most frosting recipes turn out like pure sugar and just don’t taste good. Not this one! Seriously… BEST. CAKE. and FROSTING. EVER. It’s like strawberry shortcake but better. I just can’t say enough about this recipe.
Plus, it is the perfect Spring event or Easter cake! I made it for a family event this past weekend and it was a hit with everyone! If you like strawberries, you will LOVE this cake!
