I make this cake at least once every summer, when fresh strawberries are in season. It's delicious! I found the recipe in a cook book titled, "A World of Baking".

Your recipe looks great but I had some difficulty understanding the part about the ...FOR STRAWBERRY GLAZE: where it is written to MIX TOGETHER ALL INGREDIENTS; does that mean from Powdered Sugar on down, if so what about the sifted cake flour....sorry to ask, but this sounds like a really good cake to try and I hope to do your recipe justice! :)
