Chocolate Cake with Fresh Strawberries (Kaylen's Birthday Cake)

Yesterday was my daughter Kaylen's birthday and she requested this cake. It is an easy cake to make because I use a chocolate cake mix, whipping cream and fresh strawberries! Sure to be a hit! xo

1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix
1/4 C Cocoa Powder
3 Eggs
1/3 C Oil
1 1/3 C Water

1 Quart Whipping Cream
1 t Vanilla
3/4 C Sugar
2 Lb Fresh Strawberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together cake mix, cocoa powder, eggs, oil, & water. Divide between 2 - 8 inch cake pans that have been sprayed with Pam and lined with parchment. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.
Meanwhile wash and dry strawberries. Whip cream with vanilla and sugar until it forms stiff peaks. Refrigerate until use.


Place one layer of cake on your cake plate. Spread 1 C whipped cream on layer, place sliced strawberries on whipped cream covering surface of the layer. Top with 1 C whipped cream. Place second layer on top. Frost entire cake with remaining whipped cream. Garnish with halved strawberries around base and butterflied strawberries on top.
