I have made this strawberry cake several times. I can't recall the recipe off hand, but it is a white cake mix with a box of Jello added to it. I always frost the cake with chocolate icing. My dilemma is that I am making this cake for my husband to take to work tomorrow and he would like the icing to be white so he can decorate the top with an Aviation Ornance symbol. Do you think vanilla icing would create the best combination for this cake?
I want to make this tonight so my husband can take it in the morning. How should it be stored overnight? (Sometimes I find with I put an airtight lid over a cake that is frosted overnight, but frosting looks melted in the morning. Should I just leave it uncovered?
UPDATE: I made this with white vanilla store bought icing (my daughter is teething and not feeling well and I didn't have a lot of time) and it turned out great, in fact, the whole cake was gone. I posted a new picture of it. Thanks for the suggestions.
