FRESH STRAWBERRY CAKE
First of all, I want to wish my husband a Happy Birthday. Actually it was yesterday, but I failed to get this posted until today. I made this cake for his birthday cake. It was very moist and yummy. If you like strawberries, I highly recommend this cake. With strawberries in the cake, and in the icing, what's not to love?
Fresh Strawberry Cake:
1 box white cake mix
1 3oz box strawberry geletin
3/4 cup oil
1 cup crushed fresh strawberries
In a large bowl, add all ingredients. With a hand mixer, beat until combined. Pour into a greased 9x13 cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Cool completely.
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1 lb powdered sugar (I didn't use quite this much, it made it too sweet!)
1/4 cup crushed strawberries.
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Beat together butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Fold in strawberries. Mix well. Spread over completely cooled cake.
