Strawberry Cake

Our Mother has always made our birthdays special for us.  When my sister and I were in elementary school, our Mother would bake for us Barbie doll cakes.  She would bake a pound cake and then stand the Barbie doll in the cake opening.  She would make frosting and the frosting would be the dress for the Barbie doll.  She would take the frosting and make the dress sleeveless and then pile it on and make it into a full skirted antebellum gown.  As we got older, we each had a special cake that she would bake for us for our birthdays.  She would always bake for me a Pineapple Cake.  For my sister,  she would bake a Strawberry Cake and for our brother she would bake a German Chocolate Cake.  My sister's birthday was this week and her daughter, Katie, made for her a Strawberry Cake as a surprise to go along with her surprise party.  Make a family memory by making their birthdays special.
