With an electric mixer beat butter for 2-3 minutes or until smooth. Slowly add the sugar and beat for 3-4 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time beating thoroughly after each one, scraping down the sides as necessary. Add vanilla, and mix well.

In a separate bowl whisk together flours. Add alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Pour evenly into cake pans. Smoothing tops to finish. Place in the center of the oven and bake about 22-25 minutes or until golden brown and springs back when touched.
Remove from oven and cool for about 15 minutes in pan. Gently loosen sides, turn upside down onto parchment to finish cooling. Place in freezer for easy assembly.

1/2 heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 cups chopped white chocolate
2 1/2-3 Tbsp strawberry preserves

In a saucepan bring cream to an almost boil. Pour over chocolate, and let set for about 5 minutes. Slowly stir until smooth. For a faster set. Place the bowl of chocolate and cream over an ice bath, and with an electric mixer whip to thick consistency. Add strawberry preserves and beat again until thick.
