1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray your Lodge Fish Pan with cooking spray and dust with flour.

2. Combine butter and sour cream in a mixing bowl on medium until well blended. Add sugar and vanilla and continue to mix for 2 minutes. Add eggs a little at a time and mix for two more minutes.

3. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Slowly add dry mixture and buttermilk alternatively to the batter. Pour batter into the Fish Pan and shake the pan to level the batter.

4. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool.


1. Beat butter, cream cheese, vanilla, and salt until light and fluffy. Add sugar gradually and beat well.

2. Add milk, a little at a time, until the frosting reaches preferred consistency.


1. Allow the cake to cool to room temperature, about 45 minutes. Spread frosting evenly over the top of the cake.

2. Slice strawberries to 1/4-inch slices.

3. Place blueberries in a rectangle covering the top left corner of the cake. Overlap sliced strawberries to make stripes. Slice cake and enjoy!
