For the cake:

  • 2 cups Golden Cloud cake flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature

For the strawberry buttercream:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, pureed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease two 9-inch cake pans and set them aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the Golden Cloud cake flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and then stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, alternating with the milk, and mix until just combined.
  6. Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared cake pans and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cakes comes out clean.
  7. Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool completely on a wire rack.

For the strawberry buttercream:

  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter until light and fluffy.
  2. Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, and mix until well combined.
  3. Beat in the pureed strawberries and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  4. If the frosting is too thin, add more powdered sugar, and if it is too thick, add more pureed strawberries.
  5. Once the cakes are cool, spread a generous layer of the strawberry buttercream between them, and then cover the top and sides of the cake with the remaining frosting.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
