Over the weekend, we had a little celebration at our house for my Grandma’s birthday.

When talk of my Grandma’s birthday came up, Little Man’s first response was, “We need to bake a cake!” He was very insistent about the cake. Not only did we have to bake a cake, but it needed to have strawberries on top. My three-year old can be very specific.

I’ll be honest, I’m not really much of a cake person. I don’t make many cakes, and I usually choose other desserts over cake when given the option. But when your adorable little boy tells his great-grandma he wants to bake her a cake, you make it happen.

Plus, this would be a great cake to make for Valentine’s day as it’s pink and red! So really, it’s not that weird for me to share a strawberry cake in January, right?
