Strawberry Cake

This is a landmark recipe in the Bradshaw family. I was first introduced to it just weeks after meeting Jonathan and his family. His mom is known for this cake recipe, and it will definitely haunt you once you serve it to your loved ones, so if you are not prepared to make this cake often or pass on the recipe to your dearly beloved, stay away.


1 box of Strawberry cake mix, baked as directed (so you'll need the eggs, oil, water, etc. that the cake mix requires)
1 box of Strawberry jello

Bake strawberry cake as directed. Let cool. While cake is cooling, mix up jello and water as directed on package. Take a knife and poke holes all over the top of the strawberry cake, making sure you poke through to the bottom. Pour strawberry jello mixture into the holes. Ice cake with Homemade Cream Cheese Icing, then refrigerate until jello sets up in cake, about 2 hours. Serve!

This cake is just PERFECT for summertime! You can also change things up by doing a yellow cake with orange or lemon flavored jello. The options are endless!

Grocery List for Strawberry Cake with Cream Cheese Icing:
  • Strawberry Cake Mix
  • Strawberry Jello
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 8 oz. package of cream cheese
