This cake was very very delicious. I made with 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries diced up fine instead of the frozen and I took in other sugg and used a french vanilla cake mix. I doubled the recipe as well and only used one box of the gelatin and it was perfect. I made 3- 9 inch round cakes and my kids made a bunch of heart cupcakes for themselves. I used vanilla instant vanilla pudding for the filling and topped with "whipped cream cream cheese frosting" from this site. Out of this world cake! Everyone ate it up.



I got RAVE reviews at work with the cake. I actually had some co-workers upset because it went so quick and there wasn't enough for everyone. One comment was "it was the best cake he has ever had"! I used the pinapple filling recipe from this site and just subsituted strawberries for the pinapple and then used a traditional buttercream frosting with strained strawberry puree instead of milk or water.



I <3 this cake! I baked it first for my mom's birthday, and I thought it was so delicious that I baked it again as cupcakes for my sister's baby shower. Guests DEVOURED 'em. My parents and I aren't big fans of icing, so we had the cake by itself and it was still delicious! I used frosting for my sister's baby shower and placed sliced strawberries on top of each cupcake. I actually prefer the no frosting... lol. I made a couple changes -- I use french vanilla cake mix, I only use half of the required gelatin (so 1.5 ounce), replace the oil with unsweetened apple sauce, use 2 eggs and 2 egg whites, 1 1/2 cups finely diced fresh strawberries, and substitute the buttermilk if I have to. Thanks for this wonderful recipe! :o)
