Yesterday was my darling friend Mary’s birthday.  Mary is a lovely southern girl and strawberry cake is her favorite.  So, can you guess what I made for her birthday?  Of Course!  My favorite, go to, crazy delicious, Triple Decker Strawberry Layer Cake with Strawberry Buttercream Frosting! Duh!!!

I LOVE this cake.  The recipe starts with a cake mix and adds strawberry gelatin.  This is like the strawberry cake I grew up on only even better.  The one we always had every summer.  The one that was so very strawberry!  This has become my favorite recipe for “That” cake!  It’s wonderfully moist, very rich, and beautifully pink.  It’s easy to put together since it starts with a mix and the three layers makes it a show stopper.

  • 1 Box (18.25 Ounces) White Cake Mix
  • 1- 3 Ounce Box Strawberry Jello
