Strawberry Lemonade Layer Cake

This past Easter we tried out a bunch of new recipes, one being this delicious Strawberry Lemonade Layer Cake!

A few things to note, besides that it is yummy, is that the lemonade ‘frosting’ is more of a filling mixture that is spread all over the cake and between the layers. If you make it and prefer a stiffer more traditional frosting, add a bit of powdered sugar (just a little at a time until you get the consistency you like).

Secondly, I only used half of a packet of lemonade in the filling and it was quite tart with just half. So I would highly suggest you taste test it with half and see if you want to use the rest. Many thanks to Easybaked for this awesome recipe.
