A Strawberry Cake Valentine

I have a Valentine for YOU!

This cake...

And this card...

It makes me SO happy that you come here to share my cake adventures with me!
I love hearing about your cake adventures too.
You guys make me smile! :0)

This is my Valentine's Day cake.
I make it for my family every year, and they love it!

It starts with a white cake mix...super easy!
Pureed strawberries and cream cheese make it delicious.
And I bake it in heart shaped pans to make it cute.

Strawberry Cake
  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 (3 oz.) box of strawberry instant gelatin
  • 1/2 cup pureed strawberries (frozen or fresh)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 4 eggs
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line the bottom of 2 heart shaped cake pans with wax paper, and spray the sides with cooking oil.

In a large bowl, combine cake mix and gelatin. Add water and oil; mix on medium speed. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Add strawberries and beat until blended. Pour into pans and bake for approx. 25 minutes.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup pureed strawberries (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 6 cups confectioners' sugar
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until creamy. Beat in strawberries and vanilla. Gradually add sugar, beating until smooth. Spread on cooled cake.

This frosting is very soft (and so yummy!), so expect your cake to be
gloriously messy!

Happy Valentine's Day!
