Fruity cakes are some of my favorites.  From the original Simply Delicious Strawberry Cake to our Raspberry Cake with Earl Grey Frosting to our Pina Colada Poke Cake to our Apricot Upside-down Cake, you just can’t go wrong with a fruity cake!

This Strawberry Pineapple Cake is a perfect addition to the fruity cake list!  With 2 layers of strawberry pineapple cake sandwiching cream cheese strawberry frosting and a layer of crushed pineapple, the flavors are summery and fun!

Strawberry Pineapple Cake is a great choice for Valentine’s Day, a girl’s birthday party, or just because!
