Cake Ingredients

  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 box strawberry jello 3 oz box
  • 2 pints strawberries washed, rinsed and stems removed
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water

Frosting Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp butter softened
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 pint strawberries washed, rinsed and stems removed
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup strawberries sliced for garnish


  • First things first, round up two 9 inch cake pans and preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl stir together your cake mix and Jell-O. To that, eggs, oil and water. Finally add in your berries. If you’re using a KitchenAid or electric mixer there is no need to pre-chop them. If you’re stirring by hand, cut your strawberries into bite-size pieces first.
  • Evenly pour your batter into the two cake pans (be sure these are well greased with oil or butter!) and bake for 20 minutes. Check with a toothpick to be sure the centers are fully set before removing from oven.
  • While your cakes bake you can prep your frosting by whisking together the butter, cream cheese and berries. Add powdered sugar one cup at a time. If the frosting is too thick, add a dash of milk until desired consistency is reached.
  • To build your cake, place one, cooled cake on a plate and top with frosting. Add your second cake on top and spread frosting on the top allowing it to slightly drip over the sides. Top with berries and enjoy!
