Refrigerated Strawberry Cake

Recipe by Michelle S.

I made this cake once for a boy scout auction and it sold for $75.00! I wanted to say..."it's a cake mix!" but of course I didn't. Sometimes cake mixes can make fantastic desserts...this is one of them!

I remade this cake, and instead of poking holes in it, I just cut about a 1/4 inch of cake off the top to level it out and poured the mixture on it, and it turned out so much better!!
