BAKED GOODS! YUM! Here is my delectable offering!

The Best Strawberry Cake You’ll Ever Put In Your Mouth!

We made this cake for my daughter's 12th birthday...fresh strawberries were out of season, but still yummy and pretty!

1-3oz. package strawberry flavored gelatin

1/2 c. cold water

1 package white cake mix

4 eggs

1 c. vegetable oil

3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

1-10 oz. package frozen strawberries, thawed

6 Tbsp. softened butter

2 c. confectioners sugar

1 container white frosting

1 pt. of fresh strawberries (for edible garnish)

Preheat oven to 325°. Grease and flour 2 9 in. round cake pans.

In a large bowl, dissolve the gelatin in the water. Stir in the cake mix, eggs, oil, flour, and 1/2 of the strawberries. Beat 5 minutes on medium speed. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans.

Bake 35 – 40 minutes, or until the cake springs back when lightly pressed in the center. Cool on wire racks.

Cream the butter, 10x sugar and remaining strawberries in a bowl until fluffy, adding more 10x as needed. Add the container of white frosting and mix well.

Ice the cake, and cut fresh strawberries in half, using them to decorate the top of the cake. Beautiful, and yummy!

Note: I have also made this recipe with raspberry gelatin and raspberries, or blackberries. Whatever floats your berry boat!
