Just joined the group today. I have a friend at work that makes this cake and she uses a whipped topping frosting with vanilla pudding (instant) and strawberry puree...I am not sure of the recipe but when the cake is is refreshing and so good.....We call this the ultimate strawberry cake recipe

WOW! I had a similar recipe but this one was sooooo good. Hubby & me ate half of the cake last night & I'm not a sweet eater. Needless to say it didn't bother him but for me a little dab will do ya. Yummy & super easy thanks for sharing!

This is by far and away the most delicious strawberry cake I have ever baked and eaten. Raves from everyone! I topped mine with sweetened sliced fresh strawberries and a dollop of whipped cream. Sooooooo good! I am baking another for Easter dinner.
