Ingredients:  
Yellow Butter Duncan Hines Cake Mix
4 large eggs
1 box Strawberry Jello Gelatin
1 box Instant Vanilla Pudding
1 stick Real Butter
1/2 cup milk or water
1/2 cup blended strawberries (I use frozen)
EASY ICING:
2 cans cream cheese frosting
1/4 cup blended strawberries
HOMEMADE ICING:
1 8oz pkg cream cheese,
1 stick Real Butter,
1 box powdered sugar,
1 tbsp vanilla,
1/4 cup blended strawberries
10 fresh strawberries

Directions:
Directions:
Melt 1 stick butter. Mix cake mix, jello, pudding, and melted butter until blended. Add eggs one at a time and mix thoroughly. Add milk and blended strawberries until thoroughly blended. Prepare 3 round 9" pans with the Flour Spray Pam or do it the old fashioned way and grease and flour each pan. Evenly pour batter into each pan. If in a hurry you can also bake in a sheet cake pan. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes at 350 or until a toothpick comes out clean.
EASY ICING: Open Cream Cheese Icing and add a couple tablespoons full of blended strawberries until mixed thoroughly. Be careful not to add to much strawberry mixture because it can get too liquidity.
HOMEMADE ICING: Cream together cream cheese and butter. Add powdered sugar, vanilla and blended strawberries. Remember to add a little at a time so it will have the right texture for frosting.

Remember the old adage Do Not Brag!! I always say if you're good at something you don't have to tell anyone because before long they will know it without you saying a word. This cake is both of my sons Jimbo and Raymond and my niece Becky's favorite!
