Berry Almond Butter Cake with Lemon Curd Cream Cheese Frosting

Berry Almond Butter Cake with Lemon Curd Cream Cheese Frosting

Did you know that June 14th is National Strawberry Shortcake Day?!  Well, it was and I missed it.

But better late than never I have my favorite version of strawberry shortcake for you today.

I am not a big fan of the traditional shortcake – it is a little heavy and dry for my tastes.  I prefer a little lighter and moister version.  I played around in the kitchen this past weekend with a couple different versions.  Those of you who follow me on Instagram may have seen my first attempt.

It was a total flop – it was my attempt at an orange chiffon cake.  So I went back to the drawing board.
