This fresh-tasting cake with its pretty pink tint took center stage at the reception for my farmer cousin, Scott Kittelmann, and his wife, Kathy. To hint at the flavor before cutting, garnish the top of the cake with whole strawberries. —Pam Anderson, Billings, Montana

"I've been making a cake very similar to this for years and it is a family favorite, especially when we have fresh strawberries from the garden. Mine also has strawberries in the simple butter cream frosting."

"I started making this in 1964. Its Deeelish. Once I added all liquids from box recipe and other too. Hah it made a 3 layer 45 minute cake that was soooo good. Tasted like the cake next to jelly roll. Not overly sweet but moist to the Nth degree. This recipe is a little different but is strawberry jello cake. it can make just about any fruit flavor with few adjustments. And I substitute apple sauce for oil and made butter cream frosting with half sugared strawberries. Used frozen sweetened. But its your creation do as you will."
