Strawberry Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

My sister and brother's birthday falls on Thanksgiving and often a birthday cake gets overlooked in the Thanksgiving cooking frenzy. This year I thought to ask what they would like for their cake. My sister requested a strawberry cake with cream cheese icing. I have no idea how to go about that and I've never really seen a recipe for such a cake. Any suggestions or recipes

How about using the strawberry cupcake recipe from Sprinkles. I actually like their cupcakes and think they are quite good, which I would not say about a lot of teh cupcake shops out there. Then, instead of the strawberry frosting which they use, you can substitute any cream cheese frosting. I'm sure you can find one on this site, or on martha stewart, where this recipe is posted. I think the strawberry/cream cheese flavor profile is a good one. Then again, I'm a cream cheese/strawberry jam fan. If you were making cupcakes, I'd even suggest filling them with strawberry preserves and then topping with the cream cheese frosting.

Is this too much? http://food52.com/recipes... You could use cream cheese in place of thee mascarpone. I made a really easy strawberry cake this past summer http://food52.com/recipes... and chezsuzanne modified it http://food52.com/recipes..., but neither have cream cheese icing.

drbabs beach house strawberry cake is delicious and you could serve with silvertons genius whipped cream. Not cream cheese but the creme fraiche and heavy cream are fantastic together,
