Story Behind this Recipe
This is a simple Christmas cake made with buttercream. I didn't really like it when I was a child, but now for some reason, I crave it.
The buttercream is not so sweet, so I added a little honey. Adjust the taste to your liking. I used an amount of buttercream that was right for the simple decoration. If you put the cream directly on the strawberries inside, the cake will slip, so spread the cream on the top layer and put that on top.
