Delicious strawberry swirl cake! Yummy!

I have an appt. to get my ankle checked at 1:30 PM today, so being a Mom I am not listening well about staying off my feet. I decided to make one of my favorite cakes, strawberry swirl. So I am resting my foot as I blog since it is aching pretty bad now. LOL :-)


1 pkg. ( 2 layer size) white cake mix        ( I usually use Betty Crocker we collect box tops for school)
1 pkg. ( 4 serving size) Jell-O brand Strawberry Flavor Gelatin
2/3 cup Sour Cream
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tub ( 8 oz) Cool Whip topping, thawed
1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries

Seperating egg whites
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 ( 8 or 9) inch round cake pans; set aside. Prepare cake batter as directed on package.

Pour half the batter into medium bowl. Add dry gelatin mix; stir until well blended

Spoon half of the white batter and half of the pink batter, side by side into prepared pans.

Swirl batters together lightly, using a teaspoon. (Do not overswirl, or the color of the cake will be all pink and not marbled)

Mix sour cream and powdered sugar in a medium bowl until well blended. Gently stir in cool whip. (keep in fridge until ready to use.)

When cakes are done (about 30 mins) be sure to cool them completely or cake will fall apart.
While waiting for it to cool, slice the strawberries and watch out for the strawberry theives! LOL

Strawberry Thief! Sentencing lots of hugs and kisses!!!!

Next a pretty cake plate is needed ( not really but it sure looks nice and sets a great mood)

When cake is cooled, loosen around sides of cake and flip onto plate/platter. Then add 1st layer of icing mixture and some strawberries.

Add next part of cake on top and finish with all the icing, add more strawberries.

Finally cut a nice big piece and put on your favorite plate, and enjoy with a great cup of tea, milk or coffee!


Oh and it's all calorie free so eat as much as you like! LOL Just kidding, but it sure sounded good didn't it?
(wink wink ;-)  )

Enjoy your day!
