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 am usually not a fan of strawberry cake (I was raised on the mix). However, the first time I made this cake, I was amazed at how wonderful it tasted. Now, I make this cake for two of my co-workers on their birthdays. They absolutely love it!"

"I have been a Cake Mix Doctor fan for years and used only her recipe for strawberry cake. I was a little skeptical of trying a new one but this is a delightful variation! Whipping and folding the egg whites gives this cake a nice springy feel. Plus, a reduction in the amount of oil made it much less dense. This is a very nice spring dessert!"
