Looking for a pink cake recipe, like the cake layer itself is pink.

I cannot use fresh or frozen strawberries. Jello might work. Doesn't matter what flavor it is. It's for a kid's birthday party. Thanks!

most of the recipes i've seen is not from scratch and i'd really prefer it to be from scratch, it's cheaper for me to do that.

Can I just add pink food color to a yellow cake recipe? I don't think white cake can handle the weight of fondant...

Thanks everyone this is due in a 2 weeks and am getting desperate...

Put some food coloring in it.

AKA,
White cake can absolutely hold the weight of fondant. I do 80% white cakes..even three tier cakes and they hold the fondant perfectly!
Just use a white cake mix (Same as mixing dry ingredients) and use pink coloring.
I am as a matter of fact making a hot pink two tier pirate cake this weekend covered in fondant.
Good Luck!

Use a red velvet recipe and substitute pink food coloring for the red. I do it all the time.
