Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 350.
Mix cake ingredients together and put in a well greased 9x13 inch cake pan. Bake for 40 minutes or until done. (You can use the toothpick method to test doneness, but the cake is super moist and the toothpick will probably not ever come out completely clean.)
Cream butter in mixer. Add strawberries and powdered sugar and beat well.
After cake is done and cooled off a little bit prick holes all over the top of the cake while it is still warm. (The end of a wooden spoon works well for punching holes.) Pour icing over warm cake.
