I felt like I was having an early Christmas after making this one. I’ve made buttermilk cake before but this was the first time I used icing. It was fortunate too that the local supermarket was having a sale for strawberries and I managed to snag a few boxes.
The recipe for buttermilk cake can be found HERE.
I used less sugar in mine because I also added some canned pineapples which go really well with the strawberries!
For the icing I used this easy recipe.
I know it’s called Seven-minute Icing but believe me it took way longer than that. I guess it depends on how good you are at whisking. Me and a friend took turns stirring the mixture and took us roughly 12 minutes to get the right texture.
A word of caution when you’re doing the frosting, it hardens fairly quickly so you might just wanna do the top layer of the cake so that you have time to decorate with strawberries.
Don’t get too ambitious unless you’re a pro at icing unless you wanna end up with a cake like mine:
