Strawberry Sparkle Cake Recipe

I have been waiting and longing to bake this cake as soon as i saw this in ree's blog.The actual recipe called for cream of tartar because ree used angels food cake for this. I couldn't find cream of tartar here and also the tube cake pan. Those things stopped me from doing it. But later i decided to use a different cake as base and make this one. Finally i found a perfect recipe for sponge cake and made this couple days back for christmas. It turned out so yummy..Loved it to the core..

The actual cake was so light and fluffy and with the strawberries it turned out to be a hit and i am sure kids will love it for sure.

You can even bake this as cupcakes. I used my silicon cupcake cases to bake this and it turned out just super. I loved the cute cupcakes a lot than the actual cake. 

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
