Strawberry Cake for a Queen

MarthaRayDeen -


I made this cake for my grandmother's 92nd Birthday. She loves flowers as much as I do, so it was decked out with silk flowers to give it a touch fit for a Queen! The flavor was rich and delicious and if you can use your own home-grown strawberries like I did, you get an extra satisfaction of making it "homemade".
