Triple Strawberry Cake

  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package strawberry cake mix
  • 1 (3 ounce) package flavored gelatin
  • 4 cups water
  • Homemade whipped cream (below)
  • 2 cups strawberries, sliced
  1. Prepare cake according to package directions. Bake as directed for a 9x13 inch pan. Allow to cool.
  2. Prepare the strawberry gelatin according to package instructions, using the 4 cups of water. Poke cake with toothpick. Pour over cooled cake while still in liquid form; the cake will absorb it. Chill in refrigerator for 2 hours, or until gelatin is set.
  3. Spread whipped cream over cake and top with sliced strawberries.

Whipped Cream Icing
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
  1. In a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form. Make sure not to over-beat, cream will then become lumpy and butter-like.
