My mom used to make this for special occasions but I say, why wait, life's too short and strawberries are in season now. Enjoy

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We understand why Rose's mother made this strawberry cake recipe on special occasions. It's super moist but firm enough to hold up 3 layers. The jam adds a punch of flavor next to the cake. The strawberry cream cheese frosting is rich and creamy. This cake will be great for any occasion and it's a strawberry lover's dream recipe!

Tip: When using jam in layers, if you put a ring of frosting around the edge of the cake with a piping bag it keeps the jam from bleeding out of the edges and mixing in the frosting. The Test Kitchen
