A birthday celebration is incomplete without a mouth-watering cake. And if you are looking for a cake that not only looks amazing but also tastes delicious, then a strawberry birthday cake is a great choice. Strawberries are a versatile fruit that can be used in different ways to create a variety of desserts. In this article, we will discuss everything you need to know about making a strawberry birthday cake that will leave your guests wanting more.

The Perfect Recipe

To create the perfect strawberry birthday cake, you will need fresh strawberries, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, unsalted butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and milk. Start by preheating your oven to 350°F and greasing two 9-inch cake pans. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Adding the Strawberries

Puree the fresh strawberries in a blender or food processor until smooth. Add the strawberry puree to the butter mixture and mix until well combined. Gradually add the flour mixture, alternating with the milk. Beat until the batter is smooth and well combined. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pans and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

The Frosting

To make the frosting, you will need unsalted butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and fresh strawberries. Beat the butter until creamy, then gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Puree the fresh strawberries and add them to the frosting mixture. Beat until the frosting is light and fluffy.

Decorating the Cake

Once the cake has cooled, spread a layer of frosting on top of one cake layer. Add the second layer and spread a thin layer of frosting on the top and sides of the cake. This is known as a crumb coat, and it will help the final layer of frosting to adhere better. Once the crumb coat has set, add a final layer of frosting on top of the cake and smooth it out with a spatula.

Adding the Final Touches

Decorate the cake with fresh strawberries, whipped cream, or chocolate shavings. You can also add some edible glitter or sprinkles for a fun and festive touch. Refrigerate the cake for at least an hour before serving to allow the frosting to set.


A strawberry birthday cake is a delicious and beautiful dessert that is perfect for any celebration. With fresh strawberries and a creamy frosting, this cake is sure to impress your guests. Follow this recipe and tips to create a strawberry birthday cake that will be the highlight of your party.
