If you've ever read the little "about me" description in the sidebar, one of the first things you would have noticed is that I'm very proud of my husband's profession. He chose to be a part of our country's military and has served during some of the most controversial times in our history. I couldn't be more humbled at his dedication and love for his job. Of course, being the wife of an military guy isn't always easy. Deployments and time away from home make family life difficult. But you learn to take it in stride and make the best of time you have.
I know he would have enjoyed this strawberry cake. It reminded me very much of a strawberry shortcake, which is one of our favorites. So this one was dedicated to a extraordinarily special husband and Dad. We missed you and couldn't be prouder of you!
Check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers and the hosts of this weeks recipe (where you can find the recipe), Sophia, and Allison. I'm enjoying baking along with these ladies so much!
