I wanted to try something different for Labor Day. I loved the Champagne Cake I did but I wanted something fruity too.
So I used Arbor Mist… Strawberry Flavor and substituted it for the milk in my yellow cake recipe and I used Strawberry Yogurt instead of sour cream.
My biggest error was using Almond Extract… not that anybody else that ate it cared… but I did. I am not a fan of Almond and too me it overpowered the strawberry. But the cake was gone in 2 minutes… so I guess it was just me and my Almond extract disliking ways.
The cake was a beautiful pink inside… I forgot to get pictures of it when it was cut! We all know it is hard to get a great pink when making strawberry cake so I added a few drops of food coloring to make that pink pop.
I filled it with fresh strawberries… so pretty… thanks to the help of hubby who sliced them up for me!
I did a rustic decoration job with Buttercream. I LOVE RUSTIC CAKES!!! So bakery looking delicious!! I must do more ….
Again… so pretty… I had to share….
