“A wonderful triple layer cake. It was my first 3 layer and I love it! If I remember right, I believe I had to buy 32 oz. of the frozen strawberries with juice. By time I mashed the juice out of a 16 oz. container, there wasn't many strawberries so back to the store I went.”
12-16 slices

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cake Directions:
  2. Mix dry cake mix with dry strawberry flavored jello. Add oil, eggs, coconut, and milk; and beat until well blended. Stir in mashed strawberries and pecans. Bake in 3 generously greased and floured 9-inch round layer pans at 350° for 25-35 minutes, or until cake tests done.
  3. Brush cooled layers with reserved juice (1-2 tablespoons per layer) and let set for about 15 minutes to allow cake to absorb syrup. I use a Cream Cheese Frosting for this cake (one of my favorite frostings).
  4. Frosting Directions:
  5. In a large bowl, cream 1/4 cup of butter with cream cheese. Add milk and powdered sugar, mixing first by hand until sugar is blended. Then add vanilla and mix with electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Chill for about 10-15 minute before frosting cake. If needed, chill again if frosting becomes room temperature while frosting to stiffen it again.
