Strawberry Cake for a Queen

Martha Ray Deen


I made this cake for my grandmother's 92nd Birthday. She loves flowers as much as I do, so it was decked out with silk flowers to give it a touch fit for a Queen! The flavor was rich and delicious and if you can use your own home-grown strawberries like I did, you get an extra satisfaction of making it "homemade".

How to Make Strawberry Cake for a Queen


  1. Combine cake mix and gelatin powder in a large bowl.
  2. Beat in oil, eggs, water, and strawberries.
  3. Pour into 2 9-inch round greased and floured cake pans.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  5. Cool completely before frosting
  6. For the frosting, beat together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer
  7. With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar a cup at a time until smooth and creamy.
  8. Beat in the vanilla extract
  9. Frost bottom layer first with cream chese frosting. Cover bottom layer with fresh sliced strawberries then add top layer and frost all over.
  10. Cover top of cake with more sliced strawberries and keep cool until serving.
  11. 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!
