1 white cake mix or yellow
1 small box of strawberry Jello (dry)
One cup (of large box of frozen strawberries in sweetened syrup) thawed and pureed medium chunk.
cup canola oil
cup water
3 Tablespoons all purpose flour (level)
4 large eggs

Strawberry Frosting:
1 small box strawberry Jello (dry)
1 cup of above frozen strawberries pureed (start with cup add until spreading consistency)
3 ounces of cream cheese
1 stick of butter
2 pounds of confectioners sugar
cup to 1 cup coconut
cup to 1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven 350 . Combine all ingredients mixing flour with cake mix, and dry strawberry jello. Add the one cup of pureed strawberries, cup water, and cup oil. Beat in each egg one at a time. Pour batter into 2 round greased and floured pans, or 9x13" pan. Bake 40 to 45 minutes depending on your oven and cake test done. Cool cake removing to rack. If using layers take ruler measure up one inch and make small cuts all the way around each cake. Then take a long knife and slice cake across horizontally making a total of four layers. Making sure completely cool.
Make Frosting:
This is the tricky part. If you dump all the liquid into it, you may have it too thin to stay on cake. Beat softened cream cheese and one stick of real butter until smooth. Add confectioners sugar and one pkg of dry strawberry jello. Add pureed strawberries start with cup. Beat altogether, if you need more pureed strawberries add little at a time. Fold in pecans and coconut. Put one spoon full on bottom of plate. Place first cake, frost, add each cake layer until all 4 layers have been frosted on top of each layer. I don't frost the sides.
