Garden Fresh Strawberries and a Sunshine Strawberry Cake





Garden Fresh Strawberries!  Are you kidding me?
These strawberries are absolutely amazing.
Yes, I suppose I'm bragging a bit here, but really, they turned out so sweet this year.
Yummy.  I made a fresh strawberry cake the other day and was asked to share the recipe on my blog.
~BUT~
I apologize for not posting a snapshot of the cake.
I completely forgot until the cake was sliced and almost gone!
I will make it again soon and try to do a better job of remembering.
But here is the recipe anyway... :)
Enjoy!
