Yummy! This cake was easy to make, tasty, and looked pretty when I turned it out onto the serving platter. I used about 2 1/2 cups crushed strawberries and only about 3/4 of the jello... I was a little hesitant to use the whole thing based on some of the negative reviews, but next time, I'll use it all! (Maybe the negative reviewers used jello pudding mix, and not gelatin?) Some of my strawberries weren't as ripe, so I crushed those first and put them in a separate bowl with a little bit of sugar. Those went in the fridge to sweeten up a bit while I crushed up the rest. I couldn't tell that any of them weren't as ripe this way! After baking and turning the cake out, I used a small spatula to spread some of the strawberries around the sides so it looked frosted. We love this cake, and it tastes even better the next day when it's had time to chill in the fridge! TIP ON MASHING: I cut the strawberries into quarter chunks. Then I used the bottom of a stainless steel measuring cup and smashed them on a cutting board - worked great this way.
