This is a beautiful cake to behold! And so easy with a prepared white cake. The frosting is absolutely divine. A wonderful spring or summertime dessert; make this cake at the peak of the season when strawberries are at their reddest and sweetest...enjoy! P.S. Great served with a scoop of strawberry ice cream.

This is delicious cake and not hard to make at all! I made the layers from a box. I did leave out the kirsch but otherwise made as posted. My daughter had requested a strawberry cake for her birthday and I am glad I chose this one ~ I'll be making it again. Thank you for posting a keeper!!!!
