Strawberry Love Cake

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!  A couple of days early that is!  I had to give you a few days to make this, didn’t I?  I am always finding the greatest Holiday Theme ideas the day of or the day AFTER the occasion!

I have been just drooling over all the wonderful litlle love bites that all you wonderful bloggers have been posting! You have all inspired me to make a lovely confection of my own.  I made this once before using Fresh Strawberries, this time I used frozen.  In California I had Strawberry Feilds just about in my back yard and every street corner had someone selling them.  I don’t have that luxury anymore so I used Frozen.  Can I tell you that I actually think the frozen worked better?!  It left the cake moister and the frosting more strawberryish….. yes I know that is not a real word……

I used fresh mint leaves and cute little sprinkles as the decorations for the cake and a heart shaped pan and Viola Strawberry Love Cake!
