This fresh-tasting cake with its pretty pink tint took center stage at the reception for my farmer cousin, Scott Kittelmann, and his wife, Kathy. To hint at the flavor before cutting, garnish the top of the cake with whole strawberries. —Pam Anderson, Billings, Montana

""Oh...Heavens to Betsy!!!" You gonna get so many compliments...the secret is out. One of my favorite person delighted us with this cake before...of course feeling as if I could never even bake as well as she does. I didn't bother to ask for her recipe. But, anyways thank you for sharing this one and my compliments to the TASTE OF HOME for making it available to me."

"I've been making a cake very similar to this for years and it is a family favorite, especially when we have fresh strawberries from the garden. Mine also has strawberries in the simple butter cream frosting."
