Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Spread crushed strawberries on the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan. Evenly sprinkle strawberries with the dry gelatin powder, and top with mini marshmallows.
  3. Prepare the cake mix as directed on the package, and pour on top of the marshmallows. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 to 50 minutes. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the pan to loosen the sides, and turn the cake out onto a serving tray. Store cake in the refrigerator.

I've made this twice and discovered two very important parts of the recipe that you can *not* overlook: 1) Use fresh strawberries or your own frozen. Commercially frozen doesn't interact as well with the Jello for some reason. 2) MASH the strawberries. The juice has to be released or there's nothing to break down the gelatin and you get a very unpleasant texture on the top of your cake. If your strawberries aren't very juicy, sprinkle a little sugar on them before mashing and let them set for an hour or so - the juice will come out. The cake by itself is pretty, but it does need whipped cream or ice cream (heat the cake up slightly) to finish it off for eating.

OK, first of all. OMG, this cake was SO good. I just got done making it, not only is it freakin' gorgeous as it is fresh out of the oven, it -tastes- amazing. It's moist and delicious. The jello trickling throughout the cake was awesome. I'm totally in love with this recipe. It's incredibly simple too! I made a few changes ONLY and only because I really wanted to try this and didn't have exactly what you called for. I replaced your strawberries with frozen (thawed) strawberry slices I had on hand. I also didn't have strawberry jello, I used what I did have; Raspberry. I love how this cake has marshmallows in it. I wasn't sure how that was going to turn out but as it is, it adds crunch when you're not expecting it. Sooooo yummy. This cake was again, super easy to make and loads of fun. Each step from placing the strawberries to pouring the cake batter was neat. I smiled the whole time in excitement to try this cake. I just had the first piece and I give you 5 stars. :) Thank you for sharing this with the world.

Wonderful! I add about a cup extra of mini marshmallows, cut the cake in half and stack it to make a "layer" cake, then spread whipped cream around the sides. We've made this four times over the past month, and people have raved about it every time.
