Strawberry Cake to Celebrate!

Today we celebrated my moms birthday. I'm pretty certain she would not appreciate me sharing which birthday we celebrated though. 

Awhile back my mom told the kids she was going to have a special birthday celebration{for herself; someday} for the grandkids only. Audrey was especially excited.
So, when my moms birthday rolled around Audrey was fully expecting to go to Mimi and Papa's house and have a grandkids only birthday party. Complete with lanterns hanging from the trees.
Since that wasn't on the agenda this year we decided to give her a birthday dinner here at our house tonight. 

Owen and Audrey helped me pick out the cake ingredients, plates and balloons at the store so that helped build their excitement for Mimi's dinner celebration. 
Mimi requested Chicken Parmesan for dinner and we made Strawberry Cake for dessert! 
The strawberry cake recipe is one that my mom usually makes any time an occasion calls for cake so we knew it was one she would like! 

I decided I should share the recipe with others because its that good! So, without further ado I give you
