I had some strawberries that needed to be used and I wanted to do a cake. So I ended up with this a bit weird combination, but it was actually quite good! The recipe for the lemon cake is modified from the basic cake from Koristeelliset kakut (Cake decorating) issue 1.

I actually was supposed to do two strawberry whipped cream layers but my strawberries were not so good anymore, so I needed to improvise a bit. So I used jam, and it was yum!
