Say hello to my birthday cake.

Fresh, zingy, berry-packed and oh so moist and tender. My birthday is just a few weeks away, and I’m so excited to make this cake… Again.

Heavenly Fresh Strawberry Lemonade Cake Recipe

Some might say it’s a travesty to bake your own birthday cake. There are years I agree. Those years Lt. Dan picks up a chocolate fudge cake I love from a local bakery.


However some years, I feel like there is no one in the world that understands my cakey desires better than I do. So I set off to bake exactly what I’m craving.

This is that year. This is that cake.

The entire cake is slathered with silky smooth lemon cream cheese frosting. Then I spread on a fun hombre frosting effect with a little pink frosting.

Tangy Fresh Strawberry Lemonade Cake Recipe

My Fresh Strawberry Lemonade Cake recipe offers the appeal of an ultra moist southern strawberry cake, with a little extra punch from the lemon. The fresh strawberries between the cake layers are a sweet surprise when you cut it open.

I like to make the cake the day before my birthday, then wrap and freeze the cake layers. The next day, I frost the cake in the morning and let it sit out all day to thaw and soften.

This technique helps ward off broken cake layers, slanted cakes, and crumbs in the frosting. Frozen cake layers are extremely easy to work with.

The cake looks prefect every time and no one can tell it’s been frozen.

    This cake looks like summer. I cannot wait to make it. My birthday was this month and so was my husbands. I think I will make one even though the dates have pasted. It will be happy birthday to us.

    HI, it doesn’t say what to do with the strawberries , do you cut them small or crush them?
    Thank So!

      Hi Mare,

      The strawberries just go in the cake whole, in a single layer. That’s why there are no directions for slicing them. Please take a look at the post images for clarification. :)

    This sounded so good that I made it for my son’s birthday yesterday. Oh my!! He declared it the best birthday cake ever! The cake itself is incredible with plenty of tang from the fresh lemons complemented by the layer of sweet strawberries inside. I couldn’t find small strawberries so I just sliced the big ones I had and layered them in the middle. The frosting was incredible too! So easy and there was plenty of it. Thank you!
