This is an old recipe that has been in my family for years. My mom used to make it for my dad and then I took over after she passed away. The end result of this recipe is an absolutely stunning and beautiful cake that tastes as good as it looks. Perfect for summertime get togethers and to use up all those summer strawberries.
