"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."
"It was moist BUT very disappointed in the cake flavor it tasted very artificial strawberry from the jello. My husband didn't like it. Won't be make this again."
"Very delicious, moist cake. Easy to make and extremely good with a Cool Whip 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."
"I have lots of strawberry freezer jam, I think I will spread some between the layers, it should be a nice Valentines Day cake."
