Strawberry Cake Recipe + Chocolate Buttercream Hunter Groom’s Cake

Remember the Vintage Lace Wedding Cake?  Well, this is the groom’s cake that went to that wedding!

The groom is an avid hunter and he wanted a simple cake to reflect his love of hunting!

The bride sent me the toppers (aren’t they hilarious?) and asked that I put them on a strawberry sheet cake with chocolate buttercream.  The cake was between 3 and 4 inches tall – it was two 9″x13″ layers with a generous filling!

So, they wanted to keep the cake simple… with only the toppers on it, and then decorate the table to reflect his interests… I think it was a fabulous idea and turned out great!

Anyway…. if you’ve been reading here anytime at all, you know that most of my cake recipes (especially for decorated cakes) are cake mix based (yep… and proud of it!).  The strawberry cake for this order was no different… here’s the recipe I use for Strawberry cakes!

 

It has Strawberry Creme Jello Pudding Mix!

Do you have any questions about this cake?  Please leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer and help out!

Instructions

Thoroughly mix all ingredients together.

Bake at 325° for about 30-35 minutes (longer, depending on pan size), until the cake springs back when touched. Cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then turn out on a cooling rack and cool completely before frosting.

  1. Cute! I will have to check out that strawberry cake recipe, sounds tasty! I love the way you used the ribbon tip for your border.

    • Thanks Megan! I had to do a narrow border because I made the board almost too small and I was cramped for space… I fiddled with a couple of tips but I liked that look and it was different!

  2. This cake looks so good. I’ve never had a strawberry cake with chocolate frosting. I’m think I will have to try this very soon. Did you use a special filling on this cake or just the chocolate buttercream? Thanks Rose!!

  3. Aliya Tudor says:

    I just baked cupcakes with the strawberry recipe. The batter was very thick. Is this normal for this recipe or did I goof up something?

  4. I am unable to find the strawberry pudding. What do you suggest?

  5. One more question with the strawberry cake mix. Do you use pillsbury cake mix with the pudding already in the mix? Thank you for your help

    • Yes – I use the Pillsbury with the pudding in the mix and I still add pudding!

      • Have you ever tried replacing oil with apple sauce? Ive heard a lot of people do, but I’m just not sure if it would taste the same or be as fluffy. Any thoughts?

  6. Rose! I used your Strawberry cake recipe today and it was DELICIOUS! Everyone loved it! Of course I also used your crusting buttercream recipe. It’s my go-to. :)

    I posted a pic on your FB page. It was a sheet cake and a small 6″ round cake covered in many, many sprinkles. It was for my granddaughter’s 4th birthday with a rainbow theme. She’s a girly girl and ‘had’ to have a pink cake. They also had a thick layer for the filling. Whipped cream with some cream cheese to make it sturdy and fresh strawberries. Thank YOU for sharing your talents and your yummy recipes.

    Hi Rose,

    I made this cake the other day but it turned out gummy and sank in the center. Not sure what I did wrong. Besides the recipes calls for 18.25 oz mix and I belief my mix was 15.75 oz?

    It looks delicious and I would love to perfect the recipe.

    Thanks!

  9. Hi Rose,

    I made your strawberry cake two times this week. WOW! One friend said it was the best cake she had ever eaten.
    Thanks for sharing.

  10. Hi Rose,

    For cupcakes, how long do you suggest in the oven?

  11. Jessica says:

    Hi Rose,

    I am trying to make the strawberry cake recipe for my daughter’s 2nd birthday tomorrow but I can’t find the recipe anymore. It was there earlier today, I am not sure if your server is down or what but if you could send me the recipe, I would really appreciate it!

    Thanks!

  12. Can I use yogurt instead of sour cream?

  13. Can I use butter instead of oil and milk instead of water? I’m making a wine barrel cake for my son birthday.

    • Yes on the butter for oil. I’ve made that substitution with no problems. Probably yes on the milk for water but I’ve never tried that so I can’t say with 100% certainty.

  14. lovely recipe,pls what can i use to substite for the cake mix and what are the equivalent of those ingredients in grammes or ml or tablespoon?thanks
