If you use jello for your strawberry WASC extender recipe, do you dissolve it in hot water and then use that as the liquid? How much do you use? Do you use vanilla as the flavoring? (I don't have any strawberry extract and am making the cake tomorrow.) Do you use a strawberry flavored cake mix?

Thanks for any help!

I've done it before. It makes a rather firm cake. Start with strawberry cake mix and then add the jello in place of part of the sugar.

When I've done it, the cake is firm enough that I usually brush it with a sugar syrup before frosting it so that it won't seem dry to people.

The other option is to use strawberry cake mix, and use strawberry yogurt instead of the sour cream...but cut back a little on the sugar or you'll have a crumbly cake.

I use it the same way would use a box of the powdered pudding mix, straight out of the box and into the mixing bowl. No extra liquid needed.

Jello now makes a Strawberry Creme pudding, I've done strawberry cake mix with the strawberry pudding it was very good, flavor wasn't over powering, I was afraid it might be. But I haven't tried the jello.

I use strawberry yogurt (regular,not no fat) in place of the sour cream, 3 tablespoons strawberry jello, (found the whole box to be too dense) 1/2 strawberry juice (strained from mashed strawberries) and 1/2 buttermilk for the liquid, 1/2 tsp watkins double strenth vanilla, a scant 1/2 tsp watkins strawberry extract, and a smidge of almond extract. I leave the almond out if my almond disliking friend is coming to visit.

I use strawberry nectar in place of the liquid. Use it in the buttercream also. Very good without being overpowering.
