Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Combine cake mix and dry jelly powder in large bowl. Add eggs, oil, water and 3/4 cup strawberries; beat with mixer until blended. Pour into 2 greased and floured 9-inch round pans.
  • Bake 30 min. or until toothpick inserted in centres comes out clean. Cool cakes in pans 10 min. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely. Meanwhile, drain remaining strawberries.
  • Beat cream cheese in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Gradually beat in sugar. Add drained strawberries; mix well. Whisk in Cool Whip. Stack cake layers on plate, spreading 1 cup Cool Whip mixture between layers. Frost top and side with remaining Cool Whip mixture.

Size Wise

Sweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.

How to Prevent Air Bubbles

To release any air bubbles from the cake batter, lightly tap filled cake pans on counter before baking. Any small air bubbles will rise to the surface.

How to Keep the Cake Plate Clean

Make 4-inch square in centre of cake plate with 4 (3-inch-wide) strips of waxed paper. Stack and frost cake layers as directed in centre of waxed paper square. Any frosting drippings will land on the waxed paper, keeping the plate clean! Remove waxed paper strips after frosting top and side of cake with remaining Cool Whip mixture.

High Altitude Directions

Cakes tend to stick more when baked at high altitudes, so be sure to follow the High Altitude Directions on the cake mix package. Also, grease the pans well and dust with flour or line with parchment paper before using. To prevent the batter from overflowing, use 9-inch round cake pans instead.
