Chicken Farm Baker's Project # 42: February Snack Box: Open it and fall in love (with ME), again: Strawberry cube cake

 I think that even a man can be melted but something this sweet too ^^. Strawberry and pink color, hehe


The cake is a simple vanilla cup cake, but with a help of  strawberry extract, cream cheese frosting and white chocolate, it becomes something special and yes, very sweet to look at too.
