Southern Okie Gourmet Strawberry Cake

1 package strawberry gelatin (3 oz.)

½ cup boiling water

1 box of golden cake mix (18.25 oz.)

¾ cup vegetable oil

4 large eggs

½ cup Southern Okie Gourmet Strawberry Spread (9 oz.)

Frosting:

1 box confectioner sugar (16 oz.)

½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened

½ cup Southern Okie Gourmet Strawberry Spread

Preheat oven to 350°. In small bowl dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water. Set aside to cool. In a large bowl combine the cake mix, vegetable oil and eggs one at a time. Beat to mix. Stir in half a jar of strawberry spread and the gelatin mixture. Bake in two greased and sugared 9-inch cake pans for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven. Set aside to cool. Cover top and sides with strawberry frosting.

For the strawberry frosting, in a large bowl with an electric mixer beat the confectioner sugar and butter. Add the remaining strawberry spread and mix until the frosting is moistened.

*Optional – Add a thin layer of strawberry spread between cake layers on top of frosting.
