Recipe by HLCOLBER
"An incredibly moist and light cake made with cake mix, strawberry gelatin and fresh strawberries. Great for summer picnics and get-togethers. Can be made to be very low fat by using an egg substitute and applesauce instead of oil in the cake mix and using fat free topping."

I used a white cake mix instead of the strawberry, because I couldnt' find one. :) It was DELICIOUS! I think that the reason some of the reviewers' cakes did not turn out is because of too much water. It says in the recipe to follow the directions on the box, but to use 4 cups of water. The directions on the box says 2 cups. I used 2 cups and it worked perfectly. I highly reccomend this to people who don't like a rich cake. It is light and fluffy, perfect for a summer day!
Everyone loved this cake! I made a few changes just because it was what I had on hand. I used a white cake mix in 2 round cake pans. As soon as the cakes were done, I poked holes in the tops with a fork about 1 inch apart. Then I slowly poured 1 box of strawberry jello (following the directions on the box) over the top of the cakes while both were sill warm. Divide the jello between the cakes. Then topped with cool whip and strawberries and chill for 1 hour. It turned out delicious and pretty. Very easy and inexpensive to make. Thanks for the recipe. I will definatly make this a favorite!!
this was an excellent, light dessert. I made the jello as the package directed (1 cup hot water 1 cup cold water) and did as another review suggested by poking the cake several times with a toothpick as soon as it came out of the oven and then poured the liquid jello over top and then put it in the fridge for 3 hours before puting the whip cream and strawberries on top. A huge hit with everyone in my family!
Perfect light summer cake! Another tip: 4 cups of water is for 6 oz of gelatin. Recipe calls for 3 OZ!! Therefore, you only need 2 cups of water. Definitely will make again... thanx!
I used white cake mix and only two cups of water for the jello. When the cake came out of the oven, I poked holes in it and poured the jello over it. It gave the cake a beautiful pink marble look. Everyone enjoyed this.
I made this cake twice. The first time it came out perfect! The second time, it was too wet. I think I figured it out though, you have to gauge how many holes you poke into the cake. Too many will make the cake too wet and ruin it.
Other than that I L-O-V-E this recipe. I also used Raspberry jello... it was awesome!
This cake was awesome, but I too used only 2 cups of water in the gelatin as directed on the package. I topped it with cream cheese/whipping cream dressing I adapted from recipes on this site and decorated with fresh strawberries (in sugar). Wow. Several folks told me it was the best cake they think they've ever eaten. And it is very simple to make. I usually always make cakes "from scratch" but I believe I've been won over to using box mixes once in a while. Good recipe!
