Goodbye, strawberry cake mix! I followed the recipe very closely, but I added 1/4 cup flour instead of 3 tablespoons. I used 3 cake pans as directed, and all three were filled to the top after baking. So, three pans is a must. I don't thinK I'd try to get away with using two pans. For the frosting, I used a half cup of shortening, one stick of softened butter, 1/2 cup of pureed strawberries, a 2-pound bag of powdered sugar, 1 or 2 teaspoons of vanilla (to taste) and a teaspoon of butter flavoring. I creamed the butter, shortenng, flavorings, andberries in my stand mixer, slowly added the sugar, and left it on high speed for about 10 minutes. The result was a light strawberry buttercream frosting that was easy to spread, but not to thin. I'll keep this recipe in mind for the next time someone requests a strawbrry cake.
