Strawberry Cake

This recipe is from a dear friend, named Kathryn.  It's delicious any time & easy, because it starts with a cake mix.  If you need a pretty, pink cake, then try this wonderfully moist one.
Pretty pink cupcake topped with Chocolate dipped strawberry!


1 box white cake mix
1 pkg. strawberry gelatin
2/3 cup oil
1/3 cup water
1 10-ounce box frozen strawberries, thawed & divided
4 eggs

In a mixing bowl, add the cake mix & the strawberry gelatin.  Add the oil & water & beat.  Add 1/2 box  of the strawberries and beat again.  Next add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each one. 

Our into a 9 x 13" pan, 2 round cake pans or 24 cupcake liners.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes for the cakes, or about 20 minutes for the cupcakes.  Test with a toothpick for doneness.

Strawberry Icing:

1 stick butter (I replaced this with 4 ounces cream cheese & 1/4 cup softened butter)
1 box of powdered sugar (this equals 3 & 3/4 cups)
the other half of the strawberry box

Mix together and spread on cooled cake.
