Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas


Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

The Perfect Easter Dessert - Strawberry Layer Cake

Easter is spring and spring desserts often involve strawberries. This strawberry layer cake is a great dessert. In fact, the perfect dessert for Easter.

Cake cut into two pieces and then layered with strawberry jam, sliced strawberries and whipped cream.
The whole slathered with whipped cream and decorated with three prefect strawberries, sliced and fanned out. The perfect topper for a great summer and Easter dessert.
It's not a hard cake to make and The Lunch Bunch gave it rave reviews last Tuesday. And if they give it rave reviews, it truly is a great cake.

We love Foodie Fridays sponsored by our friend Michael, at Designs by Gollum. It is always amazing at the good food that shows up on Foodie Fridays. Visit her site and see her magnificent "April in Paris" spread.

I really wish I had waited until morning to start looking at Foodie Friday--now I'm hungry. You are right--Strawberries and Easter just go together! It looks wonderful!

That's one fine looking cake, Martha.
Our strawberries are not very good at this time of year, so i'll bookmark this until we can get berries with better flavor.

Kristen said...

I love all the layers inside - very pretty!

Gollum said...

I have been searching for our Easter dessert--this looks perfect! I hope you have a lovely holiday!

Martha said...

The cake can be made a couple of days ahead actually but the put together can't be done until the day of the event. I did it in the morning -- had company for lunch and then served the rest to company for dinner -- it was fine at dinner time.

Strawberries are my favourite food! They are the one thing I would have to have if stranded on a desert island. And to combine them with cake...well...yum!

Did your box arrive safely??

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

I've been on a blogging break a medical hiatus...so now, I've been enjoying the stroll through posts I've missed.
First, yes indeed that cake is the "perfect Easter dessert!"
Now, please...where did you find the (white) soup tureens featured in your tablescape?
They're sooo lovely. Hubs and I are avid soup eaters. These would be the right size for us.

The kitty fountain with goldfish at her feet....DELIGHTFUL!

I have an Easter treat you'll enjoy, stroll on over.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

SusanQ said...

Your cake sounds delighful and easy to make! It would also be wonderful when the local fresh strawberries are in season this June! A keeper for sure :)
