Does anyone know of a bakery in the bay area that sells strawberry cake (the kind that is pink with bits of strawberries in the actual cake)? Most bakeries I've found that sell strawberry-flavored cake has a fluffy/light texture, but I'm looking for a cake that's dense/moist. I had this cake at a wedding in Aptos 8 years ago and unfortunately have been unable to find it after all these years (it's the best cake I've had in my life!).
The cake had a very distinguishable moist/dense texture with crumbs that were "coarse" but not dry. There was one other cake flavor; it was a carrot cake (same texture). The closest cake texture I can compare it to is the banana cake at Icing on the Cake, but it's not them since they don't make fondant cake (which was what the wedding cake was covered with), and they don't make strawberry cake. Someone suggested The Buttery in Santa Cruz (b/c of the carrot cake), but I don't see strawberry cake on their menu online either. Please help. Thanks!
