My favorite drink to order is almost always a strawberry daiquiri. They’re sweet, refreshing, and have the perfect balance of strawberry, rum, and just a hint of lime.

So, in honor of the classic strawberry daiquiri, I decided to transform my favorite fruity cocktail into a cake.

Is there any meal greater than breakfast? Maybe it’s the endless number of options or the fact that it’s the first meal of the day, but breakfast food is one of my favorite kinds. So why not take a classic breakfast food, like the infamous buttermilk waffle, and transform it into a layer cake? I thought this would be a fun way to enjoy a breakfast food for dessert, and I’m sure thatΒ Leslie Knope would agree it’s the best excuse to eat cake for breakfast.
