“The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook.”
While I am working on cleaning up my diet, there are a few occasions that make me pause and just throw caution to the wind. Like when it’s a loved one’s birthday.
I found myself in the position of needing to make a birthday cake, and when I asked the recipient what kind he wanted, I was told to make a strawberry cake. The birthday boy loves this cake so much, however, he wants it reserved only for special occasions. I grant you permission to make it any time. Just be sure to invite me over for a piece.
Life is short, eat dessert first.
I am not sure where this recipe for Easy Strawberry Cake originated. It has been in my family for quite some time. I guess it doesn’t really matter where I got it because it is so delicious and it is easy to make.
I know that it is not as impressive as a beautifully decorated layered cake, but therein is part of the reason that it is so easy. Just bake the cake in a 9×13 pan, allow it to cool, and then frost it with the luscious strawberry cream cheese icing. Yum! Remember, in the long run, it is the taste that wins out.
If presentation is a concern, you could drizzle a little chocolate sauce on the bottom of a plate, place a piece of cake on top, and have a few strawberries on the plate for garnish – voilà!
