Strawberry Birthday Cake




1 box white cake mix
3 tablespoons flour
3-ounce package strawberry gelatin
1 small (10-ounce) package frozen strawberries
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1/2 cup cold water
Fresh strawberries for garnish

Thaw strawberries and reserve liquid for icing.

How to make it



Combine cake mix, flour and gelatin. Add oil. Beat in eggs. Add water and strawberries. Mix well.

Pour batter into one 10-inch Bundt cake pan, two 9-inch round cake pans or three 8-inch round cake pans, which have been greased and floured. Bake in 350-degree oven for 40 to 50 minutes. Ice and top with fresh strawberries.

Simple Strawberry Icing (Original Recipe)
2 tablespoons butter
2 to 3 tablespoons strawberry juice
1 cup powdered sugar

Melt butter and add strawberry juice. Mix in powdered sugar until the desired consistency for either drizzling or spreading.

Cream Cheese Icing

This is the recipe I used instead, I like more flavor than boring powder sugar

1 Stick butter

1 8oz package cream cheese

1 box powder sugar

1 tsp vanilla

5-6 mashed fresh strawberries

Cream butter and cream cheese, slowly add powder sugar and then strawberries and vanilla, may need to add more sugar because the strawberries will give off some moisture if the icing is too thick add 1 tsp of milk at a time.
