Featured Pinch Tips Video
Family Tested & Approved
strawberry flavored gelatin (3oz)
unsalted butter, softened
cream cheese, softened
pure vanilla extract
Combine cake mix and gelatin powder in a large bowl.
Beat in oil, eggs, water, and strawberries.
Pour into 2 9-inch round greased and floured cake pans.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool completely before frosting
For the frosting, beat together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer
With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar a cup at a time until smooth and creamy.
Beat in the vanilla extract
Frost bottom layer first with cream chese frosting. Cover bottom layer with fresh sliced strawberries then add top layer and frost all over.
Cover top of cake with more sliced strawberries and keep cool until serving.
I like to add silk flowers around the bottom of the cake to give it a "frilly" look. Get creative with your ideas & everyone will be happy!
