Classic Strawberry Cake
You’ll need: 1 cup of strawberries (mashed or finely chopped), 1 package of white cake mix, 1 (3 ounce) package of strawberry jello, 1/2 cup of whole milk, 1 cup of vegetable oil, 4 eggs, and 1/2 cup of butter
ICING: 1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese, strawberry cream cheese frosting, 1/3 cup of heavy whipping cream, 1/2 cup of fresh strawberries, and 6 cups of confectioners’ sugar
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Lightly spray your pans with a non-stick spray. Then, pour the cake mix, 1 cup of strawberries, milk, eggs, and oil into a large bowl. Mix for about 5 minutes, being sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
Step 3: After mixing, divide the batter evenly into 9×13 inch pans for the cake layers. Bake the cakes for about 30 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean). Remove the cakes from the oven and allow each layer to cool completely.
Step 4: Begin preparing the frosting by mixing together the butter and cream cheese until smooth.
Step 5: Sift the sugar, adding one full cup to the cake mixture at a time. Then, add in the heavy cream and 1/2 cup of mashed strawberries to the mixture and fold to incorporate evenly.
Step 6: Spread a thick coat of icing over the cake layers and stack the layers on top of one another. Then, cover the sides of the cake with icing. Serve and enjoy.
Strawberry Lemonade Cake
You’ll need: 1 package of strawberry cake mix (add other ingredients listed on the cake box directions), 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1 cup of frozen lemonade, and 1 container of vanilla frosting
Step 1: Start by following the cake box directions for preparing the strawberry cake mix. Pour the mixture into a 9×13 inch cake pan.
Step 2: Bake the cake as the package directs. Then, take the frozen lemonade out to thaw while the cake is baking.
Step 3: Once the lemonade has thawed, stir one cup of the lemonade together with 1 cup of powdered sugar.
Step 4: After the cake has finished baking, allow it to cool for about 20 minutes. Then, poke small holes into the cake and drizzle the lemonade over the cake evenly.
Step 5: Place the cake into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour to cool completely.
Step 6: Remove the chilled cake from the refrigerator and spread the frosting over it. Serve and enjoy.
