Best Strawberry Cake Ever. That's what one of my customers said after ordering this cake a few months ago.
I used to only use this Strawberry Cake recipe. It is an adaptation of my vanilla cake except I use Strawberry Cake Mix and Jello Strawberry Pudding. I got lots of compliments on it but I was talking to my assistant Susan one day and she mentioned that she used a different Strawberry Cake recipe that actually included some real strawberries!
Since my husband and my sister and both of my sisters-in-law love strawberry cake, I thought I'd give it a try! I asked for the recipe and she graciously shared (and said I could share here)!
Let me confess... I've never really cared for strawberry cake. I love strawberry shortcake. I love chocolate dipped strawberries. I love strawberries on ice cream. But strawberry cake? Not so much. Until now.
One more thing before you get too far... this is not a scratch cake. There are always a few haters who get all worked when I share a recipe and then get down into it and discover that. So I'm telling you up front: it is cake mix based. It does have strawberry gelatin. It's not all from scratch. And it's still amazing!
Here are a couple of other quotes from my clients who love this cake:
Rose!!! You outdid yourself once again!!! The cake was perfectly gorgeous and oh my goodness, best tasting cake ever!!!!! Thank you again!!! ~ Betsy
That was the best cake I've ever had. Seriously. I have dreams about that cake. I WILL be getting anther one made for our anniversary! ~ Amy
Are you ready for the recipe? I always pair this cake with cream cheese buttercream and I should also note that I changed Susan's recipe a tiny bit, but not much!
