thumbs_up.gif Just got a quick call for a 'fresh strawberry cake' in vanilla layers with fresh strawberries in between....what kind of filling/frosting do I need to put on this? I have not done but one strawberry cake, and they wanted buttercream. Just wondering......Thank you!

Since you said they wanted buttercream then use vanilla buttercream.

No, I said that only other strawberry cake I had done, the customer wanted buttercream....I was wondering if there was another icing that would be just as good.

The customer just called me and said she wanted a strawberry cake...did not care what kind of icing. Just as long as it had fresh strawberries in it....what a description. icon_lol.gif She is not picky....

I think a subtle almond flavored buttercream might be nice with the fresh strawberries. Or you can just use something like a fresh strawberry puree. Just make sure to use buttercream to fence it in.

I always use cream cheese icing with my strawberry cakes

You can always put strawberry extract in your buttercream for that extra strawberry flavor or strawberry cream cheese. There is a great frosting recipe in the Cake Mix Doctor books for that.

whipped cream is a very light frosting to use with strawberries in the middle. i use a bit of whipped cream between layers along with strawberries too. like a strawberry shortcake. yumm!

Italian meringue buttercream is your answer. It's the only thing that tastes like sweetened whipped cream but is more stable than cream.
