Here is a photo of a cake I made recently. It was my first attempt at a layered iced cake. It turned out so good! For anyone who is interested, it is the Strawberry Whipped Cream Cake from Best of Baking by Betty Crocker. Page 245 of the book.

(ps, that is an excellent book to own all around! Really good pizza crust recipe in there as well!)
