Strawberry Mascarpone Filled Cake

My daughter usually wants me to make her a strawberry cake for her birthday. The first year she asked for one, I made the strawberry cake with a strawberry filling completely from scratch. Although it was good, the color was kind of muted and not extremely appealing. The second year she asked for one, I made the strawberry cake with strawberry filling completely from boxed, jarred,and canned items. It had a more pleasing color and tasted okay, but the strawberry preserves filling was a bit overbearing.

This was the third year (out of four) that she asked for a strawberry cake. I decided to combine my last two attempts and make a boxed strawberry cake with a from-scratch filling and a home-made butter cream frosting.

The result was a very tasty and appealing looking (well, as much as any cake I make and decorate can be) cake.

This cake was still very simple to make. The cake was just a Duncan Hines box cake. The frosting a simple American buttercream. The filling was a slight variation of a Giada De Laurentiis recipe for a strawberry and mascarpone cupcake filling.
