Strawberry Cake

This is my favorite cake for summer time, especially tea parties, a snack, or any party.  You could also think of this cake as a vanilla cake with strawberries atop!  There is no buttercream frosting needed for this cake but by all means it can be topped with it.  If I put a topping on this cake I choose Cool Whip!  Nice & light
