One of the best things about Summer? the fresh Strawberries!
The cake is so light and fluffy, after testing out so many different recipes over the years, got just the right combination to make a really AMAZING yellow
cake from scratch! (You can use box mix if your in a rush)

2Spray THREE 9 x 1 1/2-inch round pans with cooking spray or grease with butter.
3In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder & the salt until well combined.
4Add the milk, vegetable oil, butter & the vanilla to the flour mixture and Mix VERY well

6Finally, add in the eggs & continue mixing until well combined
7Pour batter into your greased pans and bake at 350F for 17 to 22 minutes OR until a tooth pick comes out clean when inserted.

10Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting Instructions
Combine the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract in a large bowl or into a stand mixer bowl
11If using a stand mixer, use the whisk attachment and mix on Med till creamy.
12While the mixture is still whipping, slowly pour in heavy cream.
13Remember to scrape the bottom of the bowl a few times in between mixing.
14Continue mixing until slightly sturdy texture.
15Frost the cooled cakes (I left the sides exposed because it gives it a nice look)
16One by one frost the top of the cakes and spoon the strawberry mixture on top of the frosting of each layer until you reach the top where the last 1/4 of the strawberries can either be chopped up and sprinkled on top of slice them and place them on top.
