    This is one awesome recipe! The only thing I did differnt, was I took the cool whip, added some strawberry jello ( dry of course), then put on the cake. But, you could instead if wanted to, buy strawberry cool-whip, or add some imitation strawberry extract flavoring. But, is a great recipe!

    God Bless you! Instead of the water you could use evaporated milk. You can do a kind of "3 milks" mixture and poured over the cake: 12 oz. evaporated milk, 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk, and 1/2 cup heavy cream. With that you can take out the sugar. This is really sweet enough and very yummy! Son, will will have a "So moist 3 leches strawberry cake"! Wow, wow....Delicious!

    This was an awesome recipe but I did switch it up a bit. I used the "tres leches" suggestion (thanks Sonia) and diced the strawberries into the 3 milks to sit overnight. I also made this as a three layer cake as it was a special birthday celebration. I then strained out about 1/3 of the strawberries and added to 1/3 of cool whip. I used this to frost between layers. Then I added a few tablespoons of strawberry jello to the remainder of the coolwhip and strained the rest of the strawberries into it as well. Used that to frost the outside of the cake. It was a giant hit! I think I'm going to try this with mandarin oranges and an orange cake mix next.
