This was great! My grandma had this same recipe, but a couple of things were different, and I think it would help with some of the things that others complained about. First, use 1/3 cup milk instead of 2/3 cup water in the batter. Second, use 1/2 cup strawberries (undrained) for the cake. For the icing, my grandma's recipe called for 1/2 cup margarine, 1 - 1 1b. box of powdered sugar, and 1/2 cup of strawberries, DRAINED. That makes a TON of icing, so I halved it, and it was the PERFECT amount: 1/4 cup margarine, 2 cups powdered sugar (which is 1/2 a box), and I still use 1/2 cup of strawberries, DRAINED. Excellent cake!! Thanks for the recipe - now I have it online!
