I am a trying hard baker and this is my first successful strawberry cake sprinkled with ground peanuts made especially for Valentines Day :-) yayyy! I did not make this from scratch though. One of my favorite cake mix is Duncan Hines and since I have one box available, that's what I made this for. I have plenty of strawberries so; I made a puree. I added 1 cup of strawberry puree to the cake mix.
The frosting is from Duncan Hines, the creamy home-style cream cheese and its so good. I cut the strawberry in 4 slices, used the inner slices to decorate the sides of the cake and the other parts to decorate the top of the cake. Try it!
