Strawberry Cream Cake

I love the way fresh berries start to hit the grocery store just as summer is about to begin.  I also grow them in my garden, and I love to eat them straight from the patch.  Making jam and desserts with the sweet berries just seems like the natural thing to do.  I found this recipe on the Williams Sonoma website (although their picture looks dramatically better than my real-life version) and knew I had to take a stab at it last Mother's Day.  All I can say is that it was fantastic.  Definitely something to try when fresh strawberries hit a market near you.

P.S. This recipe was a huge hit.  I know this because there weren't any leftovers to bring home (not even one small slice).  I suppose that is a good thing:)
