Many Many years ago a bunch of my online friends got together to do a mass recipe swap in the hopes of writing a cookbook to benefit an animal shelter. While the cookbook never got off the ground, I saved all the recipes that came out of it and this was one of them. Very simple to make and yummy to eat!

  2. Combine all cake ingredients in a large bowl and beat at low speed till moist. Then on high for approximately 2 minutes
  3. pour into prepared pans and bake for 25 - 30 minutes or till toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool completely before icing the cakes.
  4. for Icing: Combine all the icing ingredients in a large bowl and beat on high till stiff peaks form.
  5. Divide both cake layers in half so you have 4 layers. Spread the icing evenly between layers, top, and sides. *Looks pretty when decorated with fanned out strawberry slices on top*
