Cool Homemade Strawberry Shortcake Cake Design

I actually got the idea for decorating my cake on this site. Instead of boxed cake recipes, I used a strawberry cake recipe that includes real strawberries. And I made the buttercream icing and fondant from scratch. It turned out really good. The recipe for the homemade Strawberry Shortcake cake design was easy too, it’s as follows:

1 box of white cake mix

1 (3oz) pk strawberry gelatin

4 large eggs

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup finely chopped strawberries

1 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup milk

Mix all together on low speed then pour into your greased baking pans and cook on 350 for 30mins or until your toothpick comes out clean. I doubled my recipe to do all three cakes, (6″, 8″, & 10″)

The fondant recipe is:

1 cup of mini marshmallows

1 tbsp of water

1 1/2 cup of powder sugar

Put marshmallows in bowl, pour water over them, Cook in microwave for about 20 seconds. Stir until soupy, add sugar until you get a workable consistency. Once you turn it out onto your work surface, use Crisco shortening to keep it from sticking.
