Pick up a basket or two and use these tips to try out delicious strawberry cake recipes. Their natural sweetness makes everything better, from creamy smoothies and shakes and berry-licious pancakes to desserts of all kinds, including (but not limited to) easy pies, strawberry cheesecakes and refreshing frozen desserts.
