Hi guys. I have several good recipes in my back pocket but not a single one involves a strawberry cake. I have a birthday cake coming up with that request and I would love it if anyone had a recipe that they have used that would hold up to fondant. Any Ideas.

 After much trial and error this is how I have adapted my favorite white cake into a strawberry cake.This is light and very flavorful and a very pretty pink color.  If you need to be vegetarian, skip the jello, but it won't be very pink.


Use your favorite white cake recipe for 2 8 or 9" layers.


replace 2 - 4 tbsp of sugar with 2 - 4 Tbsp dry strawberry jello mix(depending on how pink you want it)


add 1 tsp of strawberry extract in addition to the usual vanilla.


at the end stir in 1 cup of finely chopped freeze-dried strawberries, including all the fine powdery bits.
