Added half the vanilla and replaced the rest with strawberry syrup. Still working on it but tasted good with fresh homemade cream cheese frosting

Such an easy recipe! I made cupcakes with a fresh raspberry cream cheese filling topped with cream cheese frosting. Will definitely use this cake recipe again because everyone was happy with how they turned out.
