Top 5 Favorite Strawberry Birthday Cakes

I have quite a few strawberry cake recipes that I absolutely love! Chocolate and strawberry are usually my go-to flavors whenever I’m picking out a dessert to try. Needless to say, I had fun reminiscing on all of these cakes as I put together this list of my top 5 favorite strawberry birthday cakes for you. I tried to keep a good variety for all of the strawberry cake lovers! There are some that celebrate more of the tart side and then some that focus on the sweeter side of strawberries. I know you’ll find one or two that you’ll love!

One of the best things about strawberries is how many things you can pair them with. It can really make the perfect match with sweet or salty, so the options are almost endless! I loved creating all of these different strawberry birthday cake recipes, and especially loved eating them! I hope you and yours enjoy them as much as I have.

Favorite Strawberry Birthday Cake #1: Strawberry Cake

First up is my classic Strawberry Cake. I got the inspiration for this Strawberry Cake from the Cake Bar in Dallas. I went there with my brother when I was in town and I was blown away by it! The flavor and the moist cake layers were just unreal. I knew it was a recipe I would have to recreate, so I hope you enjoy my version of this Strawberry Cake. This would be a great birthday cake for those who love cream cheese frosting too! 

Favorite Strawberry Birthday Cake #2: Sweet and Salty Strawberry Pretzel Delight Cake

This Strawberry Pretzel Delight Cake is heaven for sweet and salty lovers! This cake features yellow cake layers, strawberry buttercream, and a strawberry and pretzel crunch filling. If you’ve ever had the traditional Christmas strawberry pretzel salad, this is basically that in cake form! It is so delicious and has the perfect flavor and texture combination you’d want in a cake.

This Strawberry Lemonade Cake is a fun one! This would especially be a good strawberry birthday cake for those who celebrate birthdays in the spring or summer. This cake features a sweet and tart lemon curd filling–perfect for a strawberry lemonade cake, right? I just love the punch tart brings to any cake without it being too overwhelming. This cake also features a cream cheese frosting! There are so many different elements going on with this cake, but they all work together so beautifully. Your taste buds will be dancing after the first bite!

Favorite Strawberry Birthday Cake #4: Strawberries and Cream Cake

Top 5 Favorite Strawberry Birthday Cakes.

This Strawberries and Cream Cake has a more natural strawberry flavor compared to my original Strawberry Cake. This natural flavor comes out because of the freeze-dried strawberries and strawberry puree reduction in the recipe. Something special about this cake is the added freeze-dried strawberries in the buttercream frosting. Make sure to read the notes on the original post for tips on keeping your buttercream from getting too thick from them. I can’t wait for you to try this strawberry birthday cake! 

Favorite Strawberry Birthday Cake #5: Chocolate Strawberry Nutella Cake

Chocolate and strawberry are one of the most classic combinations, so of course, I had to include this Chocolate Strawberry Nutella Cake on this list. And as you can see in the name, this cake is extra special because of the not-so-secret ingredient, Nutella. This cake features my dark chocolate cake layers, a plain layer of Nutella, Nutella frosting, and fresh strawberries. This is such a good one for those chocolate lovers who also don’t want to miss out on a sweet strawberry treat!
