Although we make it for birthdays from time to time, I always associate Italian Cream Cake with the holidays! (Maybe it is because we often had Italian Cream Cake for holidays growing up!) I just love the flavorful combination of coconut and pecans, and cream cheese frosting! This is one of our favorite classic cakes!
This incredibly moist, fluffy strawberry cake has amazing flavor and a wonderful texture, thanks in part to the cream cheese and strawberry puree in the cake batter! We've filled our cake with sliced strawberries and whipped cream, and frosted with strawberry cream cheese frosting!
