Martha Stewart’s Strawberry Cake!!!!

Madilyn and I went to my mom’s house for a tea party after we had a field trip learning about tea and she had made this AMAZING cake from a recipe by Martha Stewart for her friends Birthday and we got to benefit from it! It was DELICIOUS! SOO good! And my mom, and if you know her you’ll know this is amazing, did NOT change ANYTHING in the recipe!!! So… this is completely and totally not either of our recipes, but you should definitely make it and try it. No kidding…. Seriously.
