How to Make Strawberry Cream Cake

Strawberry Cream Cake Recipe

Quickly made up strawberry cream cake, just because I had all of the appropriate ingredients on hand. Made strawberry preserves to sell on my, and ended up with too much leftover syrup. Then I also had sponge cake layers from a few days ago, which I baked to do another test. Anyway, all the right ingredients happen to be in one place.

To make a simple cake, all you need is a little imagination and a good appetite for something sweet. I may not be the biggest sweet tooth, but when it comes to making a recipe for cakes or dessert, I’m all in.

This time a simple strawberry preserves made up my mind to come up with strawberry cream cake.
