I have used the Strawberry cake in the Cake Mix Dr (both) for a long time, but am wondering if there is a strawberry cake out there that isn't sooo dense?

I don't mind using a box mix & building on that, but I just don't want to start out w/ a strawberry mix

And do all SC get a crunchy top & really brown (not burnt, just really brown)

You can make a strawberry WASC cake by using any of the following:

white or strawberry cake mix
strawberry extract
strawberry nectar
frozen strawberries
strawberry icing fruit:
(Didn't like the jello variation - too sweet.)

WASC cake recipe:

The strawberry WASC cake (using DH white or strawberry cake mixes and strawberry extract) doesn't get a crunchy top.

Thanks Jan. You always come to the rescue. I've seen the icing fruits at my local cake shop, but didn't think about putting them in batter. I may go by tomorrow & pick up a jar. In one of the links someone mentioned adding it to the butter & creaming it. When would I add it if I start out w/ a mix? And would I keep all the other ingredients the same?

If I don't have luck w/ the box & adding icing fruit I will go w/ the WASC, but it's a little more dense as well--at least the original is. I'll post how it comes out after I finish
