Strawberry Delight Cake

It's strawberry time!!! Yeah!!! February means fresh Florida Strawberries are ripe and ready for picking (and much cheaper to buy) and that means time for Strawberry Delight Cake! I know it's not decorated to the nines, but trust me, it doesn't need to be. It is 100% wonderful just the way it is! So what we have here is your basic yellow cake mix, baked into two 8" round cakes, a yummy batch of homemade vanilla butter cream, and 1 pint of sliced FRESH Strawberries. You put a nice layer of vanilla butter cream on top of the first cake layer, then (you guessed it) you pile on the strawberry slices, ALL of them. Yes, that is a lot of strawberries! Then place the second layer of cake on top, and then finish icing the rest of the cake with the vanilla butter cream, and place a few whole strawberries on top of the cake to make it pretty. This is similar to strawberry shortcake, but trust me, it is SO SO SO much butter!

I truly hope you get the chance to make this cake, as it will deffinatley become one of your favorites!
