for the cake:

  • 1 package white cake mix
  • 1 package strawberry gelatin 3 ounces
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup finely chopped strawberries

for the frosting:


  • To make the cake, preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease two 8-inch round pans and line them with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk together the cake mix, gelatin, sugar, and flour. In a small bowl, whisk together the water, oil, and eggs.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and beat on medium speed for two minutes, until well combined. Gently fold in the chopped strawberries.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for 5-10 minutes, then remove the cakes from the pans to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • To make the frosting, beat the butter until light and fluffy. Add the strawberry puree and mix to combine. Add 3 cups of powdered sugar, and mix until combined. Add additional powdered sugar, ½ cup at a time, to make a frosting that is spreadable and fluffy, but not runny.
  • To assemble the cake, spread ¾ cup of frosting in between the cake layers. Use the remaining frosting to cover the sides and top of the cake.
