There’s no use denying it, summer’s here. And with it, the first berries of the season. Fresh strawberries — local, recently picked ones — are the real deal. And whether you find them at a local store, your yard, or a farmer’s market, the first real strawberry of summer is bound to make your day. But after a time, you may want more from your berry. That’s where this amazing homemade strawberry cake with strawberry lime buttercream frosting comes in. Its light pink hue hints at the subtle flavor of real strawberries, and the flecks of lime zest in the frosting lend tang to the sweet, and contrasting green to the pink. Whether you’re 8 or 38, this is the strawberry cake you’ve been waiting all winter for.
