You can make this strawberry cake easy with frozen strawberries (but fresh is better)! Strawberries won’t be as firm if you use them frozen and the cake may cry a little after a day or so. In a pinch, frozen berries will work.

This cake filling is easy to make, sets up wonderfully, and tastes like summer!

How to Store

Fresh Strawberry Cake

To keep your strawberry cake fresh, lightly cover with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator. Your cake will last up to 5 days in the fridge… if you don’t eat it all first.

This homemade strawberry cake recipe is a great dessert prepared for your summer parties. It’s even better when done up to 24 hours in advance.
