Strawberry Cake with Whipped Cream Frosting & Fresh Fruit Recipe

Strawberry Cake Ingredients

1 package of white cake mix (regular size)
1 package of strawberry gelatin (3 oz.)
3 tbsp. of sugar
3 tbsp. of flour
1 cup of water
1/2 cup of canola oil
2 large eggs
1 cup of finely chopped strawberries

Strawberry Cake Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease the bottoms and sides of the two 8-inch round baking pans.

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, gelatin, sugar and flour.  Add water, oil and eggs.  Beat on low speed for 30 seconds, and then beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.  Fold in chopped strawberries.  Pour batter in pans.

Bake for 25-30 minutes of until toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Let cool before icing the cake, stacking them and decorating.

Whipped Cream Frosting Ingredients

2 cups of heavy whipping cream
1 box (3.3 oz.) of vanilla instant pudding mix
1/3 cup of confectioner’s sugar
*Optional – Red Food Coloring

Whipped Cream Frosting Directions

Add whipping cream to a cold bowl and whip until stiff peaks form.  Fold in the pudding mix and confectioner’s sugar until thickens.  If you’d like a pink colored frosting, then add a few drops of red food coloring.


Fresh fruit of your choice – I used strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries

Wash and cut berries and decorate making a border around the base of the cake, and then a semi-circle design on top of the cake.  You can also sprinkle some confectioner’s sugar on top if you’d like.

Serves: 10-12
