♥ the berry berry best in berry land.

this weekend, my other best friend, marykate turned 30 :)
and in honor of her summer birthday, i baked this strawberry cake
 to accompany the party that her sweet husband threw her.

although i was far too full to try the cake myself, i heard that it
was given thumbs up all around- which definitely
makes it blog-worthy, in my book!

so here is the recipe, 
(found originally here.)

cake ingredients:

1 box of white cake mix
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 small box of strawberry jello
1/2 cup water
1 cup of vegetable oil
4 eggs
1/2 a small container of frozen strawberries in juice (defrosted)

1) preheat oven to 350 degrees
2) mix all ingredients until well combined
3) grease and flour cake pans
4) divide batter into two eight inch cake pans
5) bake for 30 minutes or as long as it takes for a knife to be
 inserted into cake and come out clean
6) remove cakes from oven and cool 

strawberry buttercream frosting ingredients
1 box of confectioner's sugar
1 stick of unsalted butter
1/2 small container of frozen strawberries in juice (defrosted)

1) mix all ingredients until thickness you want is achieved
2) you may need to add more confectioner's sugar!
3) frost the cake (even in between layers)
4)  and garnish with berries
5) enjoy!
