Strawberry & Chocolate Overload Cake!

 A Super Short Post!
I saw these beautiful cakes on
My grandson wanted his favorite cake for his birthday..Strawberry. So I decided to "overload" it with a bit of chocolate :o)
This Strawberry Cake has been around for years.
It's been a favorite in our family at
 least since I was 5 years old! easy. All the ingredients are dumped into the mixer bowl and 2 1/2 minutes later, it's ready for the oven.
  Hershey bars, Kit Kats & Whoppers ..YUM!
I used 9 1/4 Hershey Bars. Just use a sharp, heavy knife to cut through the scored side of the last bar. There will be one skinny opening left in which to place it.
  I baked three 6 inch layers. 
My homemade strawberry icing is very moist..
so I used a store bought container of strawberry
icing to frost the sides of the cake.
This was to ensure that the chocolate bars stayed
securely "glued" to the cake.
I used my homemade icing to frost between the layers as well as on the top layer.
I then tied a ribbon around the bars.
Next I poured on the Whoppers and placed the
mini Kit Kats atop the cake.
  Strawberry Cake
1~ box Duncan Hines white cake mix
1~3 oz box strawberry jello
*1~16 oz container frozen sweetened strawberries
4 eggs
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
* Use only 1/2 of the strawberries in the cake.
You will use the other 1/2 in the icing.
I use most of the juice in the cake as too much juice will make the icing runny.
Place all ingredients in mixer bowl.
Mix on low speed 30 seconds till combined.
Then mix 2 minutes on medium speed.
Spray three 6 inch round baking pans with Pam.
Pour 2 cups batter into each prepared pan.
Bake @ 350 for 30 minutes.
Strawberry Icing
1 stick butter (softened)
Remaining 1/2 of strawberries
1 box 10x sugar
 1 teaspoon vanilla
Place all ingredients in mixer bowl. 
Mix on med/hi till light and fluffy.
This is one YUMMY cake!
Happy Baking
