Recipe by jb41848

This came in my March issue of Southern Living. I immediately saw it and felt the need to post. My family loves anything Strawberry and this is amazingly easy and oh so delicious. I hope you all enjoy it too!! I doubled the amount of frosting as they did in the magazine.

My son wanted a strawberry cake with real strawberries for his birthday I found this one and decided to try it. We used frozen strawberries with the juice instead of fresh because fresh just weren't available. I also made a white chocolate whipped cream frosting to go on top (he asked for white frosting) instead of the frosting in this recipe. It was amazing and a huge hit at the party. Everyone raved about it. Usually there are leftovers but this cake was gone within the first day.
