Lemon-Strawberry Cake With Butter Cream Frosting

     Recently We celebrated my daughter’s 14 Birthday. Santanna is very picky when it comes to Cakes or any types of sweets. When she was asked about what kind of cake she would like, She had said anything but chocolate. So her father made the cake which he has made before when working at the restaurant he worked at and brought home a couple of pieces for her and I to try,She liked it. So this cake he made for her again and it was a hit.

It is easy to make, Its just waiting for the different methods to cool, was the hard part.

Here is is method, once you try this, I hope this will be a favorite for you also.Please let me know how this works out?

Preheat oven to 350 Degree’s.

Place parchment paper into 2 13+9 shallow baking pans.


3 c                    Flour(all-purpose)

2 tsp                 Baking Powder

  1. Anything but chocolate? Who is this girl? Glad to hear your husband knows what he’s doing and managed to save her Birthday.
    I would totally fail at the flipping part (to put both fillings together). Everything would crumble.
