Strawberry Cake

Typically, I don't buy flavored cake mixes because of the artificial taste. However, mixes were on sale--cheap--- so I bought a few.

I jazzed this one up with strawberry preserves and pink glaze. Turned out pretty and didn't taste too artificial.
I did want the preserves to end up in the middle of the cake-- maybe using a bit less next time will keep it from sinking to the bottom of the pan.

I think I will buy lemon curd and do something similar with the lemon cake mix. Oh, and lemon flavored glaze--- that ought to be yummy!

If you know any good ways to improve store bought cake mixes, please share. I have several more boxes!

  1. Well, that looks great! The only baking idea that springs to mind is one for cupcakes. Instead of icing them, just melt chocolate or white chocolate and dip the tops of the cupcakes in. Before it sets, dip into sprinkles. The chocolate sets hard and crunches nicely. The little cakes are durable for travel, like going to class and getting dropped on the way (I did that once, not the girls!).

  2. I forgot about cupcakes! Talon loves them. Thanks for the chocolate idea--- What a nice change from frosting. Bet Talon would go nuts since he is a chocoholic! Might try some dark chocolate for myself but he'd probably eat mine too! I make a cake that has a topping like that minus the sprinkles--- I'll post it sometime.
