Strawberries ‘n Cream Crumb Cake.

Buttery and moist crumb cake filled with cream cheese and juicy strawberries. To put it over the top, I go heavy on the crumb topping and finish it off with a sweet vanilla glaze.

There’s no sweeter way to start this summer week! I am head over heels with this show-stopping crumb cake, as you can probably tell by all the photos I’m sharing today. I was sucked into this photo shoot and could not stop snapping (and tasting) this beauty.

Speaking of photo shoots, this cake joined me in a magazine photo shoot last week. Do you read Where Women Cook? It’s a popular quarterly magazine sold in Costco and other large wholesale stores. I’m going to be featured in it this fall! They photographed and interviewed me in my new house last week.

I know you’re curious… and yes, Jude got in a few shots.

Being photographed for a magazine was a little strange. In a good way! I’m usually fine in front of a camera (not shy at all) but the photographer told me I raise my shoulders when I pose, which isn’t flattering for any woman – of any size. I had no idea I did that?! A great tip I learned from her: drop your shoulders down! It lengthens your neck and makes you look taller and more confident. Good to know before our wedding pics.

For the photo shoot, I made this lip-smackin’ cake, along with my famous cake batter chocolate chip cookies. The magazine asked me to bake recipes that describe my blog and baking style. Clearly, sprinkles and streusel and pink and glaze represent SBA.
