Cake flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, butter, oil, egg, egg white, vanilla, and buttermilk.

Frosting Ingredients

Pasteurized egg whites, powdered sugar, vanilla, salt, butter, freeze-dried strawberry powder.

Mix the dry ingredients together on low with a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Then mix in the butter until it looks like wet sand.

Step 1

Add the oil, egg, egg white, and vanilla. Then slowly mix in the buttermilk until a batter forms.

Step 2

Pour into cake pans and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the cakes spring back when lightly touched.

Let the cakes cool completely on a wire rack before you start making the strawberry buttercream frosting.

Step 4

Whip the egg whites and powdered sugar into a meringue with medium peaks. Then mix in the butter and strawberry powder.

Frost the cake. Start with a thin crumb coat and let the cake chill for 20 minutes. Then apply a thick second layer of frosting.
