I made this cake for my moms birthday because she LOVES strawberries. I read all the reviews and decided to make this cake using a Golden Vanilla cake mix, leaving out the oil, only using 3 eggs, used strawberry cream cheese, and of course the pureed strawberries. The cake turned out PERFECT! I baked it for about 28 minutes, and my toothpick test actually came out clean. It was dense like a homemade cake is supposed to be. But not overly so. I also waited till the cake was cool covered them and put them in the fridge overnight. This cake needs to be kept cold. For the frosting I made it according to the directions except I used strawberry cream cheese. I didnt have any problems with my white chocolate and cream cheese melting, I whipped it all together using my Kitchenaid mixer. But even after waiting for it to cool then adding the Cool Whip and letting it sit in the coldest part of my refrigerator overnight it was very liquidy. So I put it in my deep freezer until the edges started to freeze, whipped it at the highest speed on my KitchenAid, and added 2 heaping tablespoons of confectioners sugar. It was absolutely PERFECT! The best frosting I have ever had. My cake got rave reviews, both my mom and my aunt said it was the best cake they had ever had in their whole lives. I put a thin layer of frosting and strawberries in between the layers, and garnished the cake with sliced strawberries and chocolate covered strawberries. Thanks for a great recipe!
