Directions:
In a mixing bowl combine cake mix, gelatin and flour. Beat in oil and eggs. Drain strawberries, reserving ½ cup syrup for frosting. Add berries and water to batter, mix well. Divide batter between two waxed paper-lined 8-inch baking pans, one square and one round, (use 9 x 13 in. pan if you don’t want to make a heart cake, I used two heart shaped cake pans). Bake at 350 degrees 30-35 minutes (square) and 35-40 minutes (round) or until cake tests done. Cool for 10 minutes remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely. In a small mixing bowl combine butter and reserved syrup. Gradually add sugar; beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Place square cake diagonally on a 20-in. x 15-in. covered board. Cut round cake in half. Frost cut sides; place frosted sides against the top two sides of square cake, forming a heart. Frost sides and top of cake. Decorate with red-hots if desired.
