Strawberry Cake

Today is my middle son Casey's 20th birthday; in honor of the occasion, I made him a tofu stir-fry for dinner and his favorite strawberry cake for dessert. Here is the recipe.


1 box white cake mix
1 box strawberry gelatin
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil
3 eggs
1/2 cup frozen strawberries, thawed and crushed

Combine al ingredients. Mix for four minutes with electric mixer. Bake in two eight-inch layer pans, following baking time on cake mix box.


1 box powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup frozen strawberries, thawed and crushed

Mix sugar and butter; gradually add strawberries until mixture is of spreading consistency.

Happy Birthday, Casey! May all your wishes come true, today and always!

OMG, he looks JUST like you! Happy birthday to Casey. My daughter's bday was Saturday, so my son made her a chocolate peanut butter cake. Yum! Strawberry cake sounds pretty awesome too. :-)

Thank you, S.M. Sprinkles make everything beautiful! :-)

The other two boys look more like their dad, but people always say that Casey looks more like me. Poor Casey! ;-) Chocolate peanut butter cake is more down my alley, but Casey has requested this strawberry cake as long as I can remember. Last night we ate it with "strawberry lemon delight" ice cream from Kroger. It was the perfect foil.

You're son's a cutie. Love the hair. Tell him Happy Birthday!!

Hey Bryonna, you are welcome to "steal" my recipe. After all, I "stole" it from my ex mother-in-law, LOL! Incidently, this is the same son who decorated my kitchen lamp with the bananas. There is never a dull moment around here!
