Strawberry Layered Cake Recipe with Whipped Cheesecake Frosting

I received the cutest little letter in the mail the other day! It was a sweet note from my grandma with the perfect suggestion for my next recipe to whip up! And there is no way I could resist her request! Per her experienced directions and a little substitution I came up with this delicious strawberry cake recipe with whipped cheesecake frosting!

One thing you don’t know about my grandma is that she used to do some cake decorating back in the day! Isn’t that just perfect! It is no wonder I am part of her family! She has so many great tips and advice for this baker in training. I sure do love her!

Now before you start thinking that this looks a little to advanced for your skill level let me talk you down for a second. All you need to do is make a simple white or vanilla cake. In my opinion cake always tastes best when you are able to make it from scratch. But if that’s not an option or you don’t feel like going through that right now, then just bake up a few 8” rounds from a cake mix.
