Posie Gets Cozy // Alicia Paulson baked herself a birthday cake. I don't really craft, and yet I adore her. The only craft blog I read. She makes me want to cross-stitch. (Which, actually, I used to do as a child and in my early teens.)
Made this for a friend's engagement party..... so delicious! Make sure to have three inch high pans though instead of two (otherwise it will overflow) or make four layers instead of three. Also, allow time for the frosting to soften before frosting. (i always forget that!)
In a large bowl, beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Add strawberry puree and strawberry extract, beating until combined. Gradually add confectioners' sugar, beating until a smooth and spreadable consistency is reached
