Strawberry Lemonade (WASC Method)

Strawberries and lemons were made to go together. When you add cake and buttercream, it's like heaven. 

I was trying to get a good combination of strawberry and lemonade in a cake without using gelatin. This came out great using the WASC method. I typically have 3 layers of filling and 4 layers of cake in a tier so I did first and last layer of filling with SBC and the middle layer lemon curd mixed with VBC.


  • 1 box Lemon Supreme Cake Mix (DH)
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • dash of salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup pureed frozen strawberries in syrup (thaw first, leave all juice in when you puree)
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 2 tsp strawberry extract
  • 1 tsp lemon extract


1. As in directions for “Original WASC cake recipe” I preheated oven to 300F. 1. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl, I always whisk them together – set aside.
2. I use a stand mixer on low “2″ and blend the last 5 ingredients together.
3. Still keep it on “2″ or low I mix in about 1/2 the dry ingredients, then the other 1/2.
4. Turn mixer to medium “4″ and mix for 2 minutes.
5. Pour batter into prepared pan(s) – I use Pam spray on sides and bottom
and line bottom with parchment paper.
6. Bake on 300F for about 20-30 minutes (depending on size of pan(s) and then 325F for about an equal time.
As with the “Original WASC cake recipe” this makes the batter of about 1 1/2 mixes. I made 2 8″ rounds and they rose beautifully! I also added a little bit of strawberry and lemon extract to my VBC for added flavor!

I just made this cake for a bunch of people. They all loved it! Thanks for the recipe! I used vanilla buttercream with real strawberry juice for the filling and some of the frosting on the outside. It was awesome! I will be making it again! Easy! ;) Thanks! :)


Made this cake for a birthday, all I can say is OMG. This is now my favorite & has become the favorite of everyone that has tried it. Super moist & delicious!!!!!!! The tartness of the cake in contrast to the sweet buttercream is wonderful. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.


THIS CAKE IS PHENOMINAL!!! I found a recipe for Lemon Curd on the Food Network website and used that in the middle!! It was out of control good!! Then used a vanilla butter cream on the outside. Everyone I served it to melted when they tried it!! I WILL be making this cake MANY times over!!! Thanks for posting the recipe!!!


Thank you for sharing this recipe. It was perfect! The cake looked like wheat bread, so if you would like a pink cake, add some food coloring. Made these into cupcakes and they came out just right. This is a keeper!!
