Fresh Strawberry Cake Recipe | Cream Cheese Frosting


It’s strawberry picking season, and this is a delightful cake to make with fresh strawberries!  There’s nothing like taking the kids or grandchildren and going out to the strawberry patch to pick your own fruit!

I like to make a fresh fruit strawberry rhubarb cobbler too! This recipe was shared by one of my co-workers and has quickly become a favorite!  Starting with a box cake mix, it’s easy and quick to make. Bring to your next summer picnic – Top it off with homemade cream cheese icing!
