Simple Strawberry Cake

Sarah Forbess Recipe shared by:

I'm not a fan of boxed strawberry cake mixes,so I tweaked a white cake,and this is what I got. Its very easy to make. If you don't have fresh strawberries, use thawed frozen ones,but not the kind packed in sugar. Before pulverizing the berries,esp the frozen ones,toss a tsp of sugar in with them.

Tips

Add Color to your Glaze!

Add Color to your Glaze!

Sometimes a pure white or cream colored glaze is just so blah looking. Especially when you want more than just taste as appearance also counts. Try mixing food coloring and water together until you've found the color you would like! Reference is always on the back of any food color box anyway. Make your glaze and if it calls for water, use that amount to color with! Remember you don't need much. Experiment a little to get the color choice. Even white chocolate frost/glaze can be colored!


Sugared Paper

Sugared Paper

When i make cakes and i want to cool them off i normally take up a clean space and i line the space with white paper or waxed paper, and instead of using flour to make it not stick i use Sugar, i use either or, Granulated Or Powdered. My fave is Granulated. i never cared much for that powdery blan flour taste at the bottom of the cake so i "Sweetened the Deal"
