Strawberry Cake with icing

Strawberry Cake
Plain Flour/ cake Flour: ½ cup
Baking Powder: 1tsp
Salt: a pinch
Baking Soda: a pinch
Butter @ room temp: ¾ cup
Sugar: 1 ½ cups
Strawberry Puree: 1cup
Eggs: 4
Vanila/Strawberry Essence: ¾ tsp
Red Food Color: a pinch
Milk: ½ cup
Whip cream
Cold Milk
Canned Fruits

Method Of Preparation
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two 9-inch cake pans with parchment paper. Lightly coat the pan with butter, dust with flour, and tap out excess. Set aside. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together and set aside. Cream the butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar until light and fluffy in a large bowl using a mixer set at medium-high speed. Add 3/4 cup strawberry puree and the eggs, one at a time, blending each addition thoroughly. Scrape down sides of bowl and beat in vanilla extract and the food coloring. Reduce mixer speed to low and add the flour mixture by thirds, alternating with the milk and ending with a final addition of the dry ingredients. Divide the batter equally between the pans and spread evenly. Bake on the middle rack of oven until a tester inserted in the center of each cake layer comes out clean -- about 20 to 30 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Cool the cake completely before slicing and icing.
Cut the cake to two pieces.
In a bowl take whip cream powder, cold milk and essence.
With an electric beater beat at high speed to about 4 minutes or till stiff peaks.
Decorate the cake as per your choice adding the colors and by spreading the canned fruit and jam in the middle.
