My family loves this cake. My oldest daughter has had this cake for her birthday the last 42 years. LOL and any time she can get me to bake it for her. It makes a beautiful cake.Hope you will enjoy it.
Mix first 5 ingredients,add 1 envelope of dream whip. Beat total 2 min. Pour into a prepared tube pan.
Bake cake in a tube pan at 350 for 45 to 50 min.or until top springs back when touched.Let cool completely.
While cake cools mix whipped topping according to package directions,refrigerate until needed.
Take a very sharp knife or bread knife and cut the top off cake,lay to the side.
Scoop out inside of cake leaving about 1/4" on sides and bottom. Put cake(what you scooped out) in med. bowl put in 1 1/2cups of strawberry's mix together,add 1/2 whipped topping and fold in.
Stuff strawberry mixture into cake cavity,do not over fill or your sides will split. Place top on cake. Decorate top with rest of whipped topping and strawberries. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours before serving.
NOTE: I like to use the filling thats left to fill up the hole in center then frost cake with whipped topping with strawberries on top.Also extra strawberry's on the side.
