Strawberry Sour Cream Cake


Strawberries is always been one of my  favorite fruits and can't resist adding these sexiest fruit into my baking today. My baking partner G and myself's  mission was to create a yummylicious cake which is simple to bake yet looks great - we ended up creating this lovely cake known as the Strawberry Sour Cream Cake.


We cleaned and sliced the strawberries waiting to be sandwiched into the butter cake with some sour cream mix.


Remember cool the cake completely before cutting it horizontally.


The strawberries slices really brighten up the simple butter cake! Don't you agree?


It looks more like a Strawberry 'Hut" cake yeah....  :)  This creation not only looks fabulous but tastes so good! Our mission is complete and it was a great success!
