Happy Birthday to me!

Cory made me a cake for the first time this year. Doesn't it look delicious?! Well it was! Strawberry lemonade cake with four layers; and he made it all by himself :)

We celebrated with dinner (sushi, yum), cake of course and a rented movie (We bought a Zoo). Overall, a great day!

Strawberry Lemonade Layer Cake!!

Moist strawberry cake layered with a rich lemonade cream filling.  Introducing summer——on a plate!
  • One box of strawberry cake mix (plus oil, water and eggs as directed on box)
  • 8oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese (softened to room temp.)
  • 1 packet (0.23oz.) of Kool-Aid Lemonade
  • Yellow food coloring gel (as desired for color)
  • 2 cups Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme (we only used 1 cup)
  • 8 oz. Cool Whip Topping
  • Fresh strawberries to garnish.
  • Make cake according to box and bake in 2- 9 inch round cake pans as directed.  Turn finished cakes over on cake racks and allow to cool completely.
  • Cream together cream cheese, lemonade and yellow food coloring until smooth.
  • Mix marshmallow creme in and then mix in Cool Whip until completely smooth.  Refrigerate until cake is cooled and cut.
  • Cut each cake layer in half.
  • Alternating layers of cake with layers of filling, assemble cake.  End with layer of filling.
  • Top with sliced strawberries.
  • Refrigerate and serve chilled.
