Strawberries have been on sale here in the Phoenix area for a few weeks now and my family has thoroughly enjoyed them in soooo many recipes! I know that strawberry season will be ending soon - and  I couldn't let it pass us by without sharing this yummy and simple Strawberry Buttercream Frosting!

I love this frosting on white, yellow and chocolate cake ... and I'm not gonna lie, I love a spoonful before it goes on the cake! It's just too delicious and tempting to not sneak a bite! I have used this frosting for birthday cakes and it's great for any summer get-together!

I will note that since this recipe uses fresh fruit, you may need to adjust the ratio of fruit and powdered sugar for this recipe! My strawberries were so juicy that I needed about an extra 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar for these pictures. If your frosting is too thin, add more powdered sugar. If your berries aren't lending very much juice, you may need a few additional berries. Also, putting the decorated cake in the refrigerator after decorating will help the frosting set up better, especially if it is a layer cake!
