This wonderful moist cake is bursting with strawberry flavor! Plan ahead the cake chilled for about 2 hours before frosting, use as much strawberries as you like for the top :)

This recipe is missing the pudding on top of the strawberry jello. Then let it set for 1 hr. Then put Cool whip on top of that and serve
