Strawberry Crunch Cake

Strawberry Crunch Cake

Remember those ice cream bars from when you were a kid that were covered in delicious bits of strawberry crunchies? This layer cake is blanketed in a homemade version of those same crumbles. Homemade strawberry crunch is made with a combination of freeze dried strawberries and crushed vanilla wafer cookies, plus a little melted butter to hold it all together. It is decadent, fun, and nostalgic!

In fact, freeze strawberries are used in two ways in this recipe. Not only in the strawberry crumble, but they are also incorporated into part of the buttercream frosting to create a couple of layers inside the cake with strawberry flavored frosting.
