Strawberry Cream Cakes
Strawberry cake is a cake that uses strawberry as a primary ingredient.
Strawberries may be used in the cake batter, atop cakes and in a strawberry cakes frosting. Some are served chilled or partially frozen, and they are sometimes served as a Valentines Day dish.
The cake has been served as part of the events at the Strawberry Festival in the town of La Trinidad in the Philippines.
Strawberry cakes may be prepared with strawberries in the batter, with strawberries atop them, with strawberries or a strawberry filling in between the layers of a layer cake, and in any combination thereof.
Some are prepared with strawberries incorporated into a frosting. Fresh or frozen strawberries may be used. Some may utilize strawberry-flavoured gelatin as an ingredient, which can give the cake a pink colour when it is mixed in with the batter.
A garnish of strawberries is used on some strawberry cakes. Strawberry cake may be prepared as a gluten-free dish.
