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.
