Strawberry Preserve Cake - Recipe




This is the recipe for the strawberry cake that was made for my birthday.


I have to say that it was really bursting with strawberry flavor and was very, very good.
There is nothing like a wonderful cream cheese frosting for a cake.

mmm...
There was more than enough frosting and of course one just has to lick a portion of the bowl.
