This simple vanilla cake is a two layer cake topped with mascarpone buttercream frosting and fresh strawberries. It's so easy to make, but looks stunning! Our April Instagram takeover is here! I've collaborated with a group of food photographers, stylists, and recipe developers around a single theme, and this month we're bringing you the best of the best recipes featuring everyone's favorite little berry: strawberries. Say hello to my vanilla two layer cake with mascarpone...
So here's the thing about chocolate chip cookies -- I can't commit to stop testing new recipes until I've found the one. It's like searching for a life partner.

Whether I'd like to admit it or not, my life has been more chaotic than calm recently, and I am doing everything within my power to realign the stars and focus.
