Hey guys! How are you liking the site so far? I hope you love it as must as Julie and I do. If you haven’t met me yet, I’m Alli and I blog over at Tornadough Alli! I’ve been addicted to cakes for longer than I can remember so it didn’t take me long to say yes to making cake apart of my everyday life and helping Julie out with this here amazing site! We have pulled some of the best cakes from around the web as well as adding a fun full length cake recipe weekly! This week I bring you this delish Strawberry Almond Layer Cake.
So I’m not to biased when it comes to cakes. I love them all, bundt, sheet, layer, cup, poke, dump. I mean if it has cake in it’s name, I’M DOWN!! For real though, we love cake around this house, well I do. My husband is referred to as Mr. Non Sweet’s Lover and is just a sour puss when it comes to anything with sugar, well besides candy, which I’m not so much a candy person. So we are opposite on that front!
This Strawberry Almond Layer Cake is so moist and soft and full of flavor that it is one of my all time faves so far that I’ve made. But I kinda say that about EVERY cake that I make, so yeah. Like I said, rarely do I meet a cake or dessert in that matter that I don’t like and that absolutely includes this Strawberry Almond Layer Cake!
White cake is filled with almond buttercream and strawberries then it is frosted in an almond strawberry buttercream on the outside and topped with fresh strawberries and sliced almonds. Oh my…that’s what I have to say about this cake. No joke ya’ll! This recipe makes 2 8″ cake layers, I’ve usually made 9″ cakes in the past but started more towards the 8″ cakes because they make them taller and more pretty in my opinion.
Do you have a family get together and you’re on dessert duty? A class reunion this summer? A picnic? There is always a reason for cake and let me tell you that you need this Strawberry Almond Layer Cake in your life SOON! So do yourself a favor and whip it up fast because this thing won’t last long, I promise!
I just made this cake and there is an insane amount of frosting!! I only used about a third of it and I still think there was a generous amount. No wonder it’s 1200 calories a slice. There is over a cup of sugar per slice. I would highly recommend only making about 1/3 of the amount of frosting. It looks great though. Can’t wait to try it.
How much should the 1 1/2 sticks of butter listed under the ingredients section be equal to?
Can I replace the shortenings in the buttercreams with more butter? Shortening tends to make the frosting taste overly sweet, and given that theres a lot of sugar in there, I’d like to reduce the sweetness if at all possible. Thanks! This cake looks delicious!
