Southern Strawberry Cake W/ Strawberry Frosting

May 4, 2021

Birthday Cake for my daughter , strawberry cake with strawberry frosting. I used 3 cake pans with 2 boxes of Strawberry Cake Mix. I made the buttercream strawberry frosting on the cake and the almost white buttercream around the cake on the top.

Follow the directions on the box for the cake.
Recipe for the strawberry buttercream with the fresh strawberry reduction.

STRAWBERRY REDUCTION
• 16 oz frozen strawberries
• 1 tsp lemon zest
• 1 tbsp lemon juice
• 1 pinch salt
• 4 oz sugar

EASY STRAWBERRY BUTTERCREAM FROSTING
• 4 oz pasteurized egg whites
• 16 oz unsalted butter
• 16 oz powdered sugar
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 4 oz strawberry reduction
I used the reduction in between the layers before the frosting as well as the buttercream. I used a Vanilla 5 minute frosting recipe around the bottom and some on top.
