I was all set to give it a shot. My oven was preheating, my pans were prepped, I pureed some berries (wanted to try fresh) and dumped my cake mix into the bowl. I went to grab that box of strawberry jello I knew was in my pantry and...it turned out to be raspberry. So I debated. Try the raspberry? Move forward with just the berries? I figured b/c their fresh rather than frozen it probably wasnt't going to be enough flavor and I didn't want to mix the raspberry jello with the strawberries. I'm home alone with my three kids in bed so theirs no late trips to the grocery store for me. I'll have to wait till tomorrow. icon_sad.gif

That stinks! I hate when you go to grab that ingredient that you know is there and it's not. icon_sad.gif I would love to hear how it turns out!

Jessica, do you use sweetened or unsweetened berries?

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. icon_sad.gif I use unsweetened berries. I'm sure it would work fine with sweetened berries, too.

I can't wait to try the WASC with strawberries. It seems as though every strawberry cake recipe that I've tried so far sinks in the middle. I've tried the CMD's twice & both times, it sank. I think there's too much sugar in the recipe. I guess that's part of trial & error. Hopefully, this recipe will work out great & the search will be over.
thanks

I am so glad I found this post. I tried the WASC recipe on Thursday and needed it to be strawberry cake. I didn't know how much strawberry juice to add, cause it didn't say how much in the recipe. I added 2 ten ounce pkgs strawberries and juice. I didn't like the effect adding the strawberries had on it and I think I added WAY too much juice and it turned out 'soggy' feeling to me. Also, I think it was because I used walmart brand strawberries and it made the cake taste like play dough to me. I also added a package of Strawberry jello to help it look more pink and add more strawberry flavor. I was unhappy all the way around with the results, so, I ended up dumping all the cakes in the trash.
I am anxious to make it again without altering it and see if I can do a better job.

Do you think Strawberry cake mix could be substituted for the white cake mix?? That is what it says to do for chocolate...so I would think you would do it for strawberry too???
Has anyone used this recipe to create yellow cake? I don't particularly like yellow cake, but recently I am getting TONS of requests for it.

Thank you for asking the creator about the quantity of berries to add.
