Every year around Valentine's I get a hankering for strawberry cake. The best one I have made is from Paula Deen's collection. As you can see from the photo however, my frosting is a bit runny. I can attribute this to the fact that I "tried" to cut back on the amount of confectioner's sugar the recipe called for in an effort to be a tad healthier. In this case, the recipe was correct and I needed to use all seven cups of sugar. The cake itself is moist and delicious and the strawberry smell coming from your oven is divine! Paula makes hers as a layer cake but I made mine a sheet cake just because it is easier and quicker to do a sheet cake. Since this type of frosting is just too sweet for me, I have decided the next time I make this cake I will put a whipped cream topping on it.
