1. Whisk together the all purpose flour, cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 2. In another large bowl, whisk together the oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Stir into the dry ingredients. 3. Add the puréed strawberries and stir until combined.
4. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean with a few moist crumbs. 5. Let the cake cool completely in the pan. 6. Make the frosting right when the cake is done baking so it can chill alongside the cake. Using a hand or stand mixer with the paddle attachment, mix together the cream cheese and butter.
7. Mix in the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, followed by the strawberry puree. 8. Refrigerate the frosting for an hour so it can thicken up. 9. Once the cake is completely cooled, spread the frosting on top.
