Strawberry Lemonade Cake Makes the Party

After 42 years teaching orchestra I thought my husband deserved something special.  So we invited his colleagues over for a retirement dinner and this Strawberry Lemonade Cake was a hit!  It was the grand finale I was hoping for.  I followed the recipe for the cake which reminded me a lot of a lemon bread I used to make.  It is a dense cake.  The frosting was a little too sweet for me, so I added softened cream cheese to the mix and liked it much better.
 Fresh strawberries are sandwiched in between layers.  The cream cheese gave the filling body and substance. The pink color comes from blending in chopped berries into the frosting.
