 Similar to an all-in-one strawberry shortcake, this easy, delicious cake is perfect for any occasion.  The cake is baked then inverted to reveal the tasty strawberry topping.

Add a dollop of whipped cream and some fresh sliced strawberries for garnish.

What You'll Need

  • 2 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 3 cups mashed strawberries (about 20 to 24 ounces)
  • 1 package (3 oz) strawberry gelatin
  • 1 box (approximately 15 ounces) white or yellow cake mix (with oil, water, and eggs per package instructions)

How to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 350 F. Generously grease a 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking pan.
  2. Sprinkle marshmallows evenly over bottom of pan.
  3. In a bowl, combine mashed strawberries and gelatin then set aside.
  4. Make cake batter following the package directions. Spread batter over marshmallows in pan. Spoon strawberry and gelatin mixture evenly over batter.
  5. Bake at 350 F for 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  1. Place cake on a wire rack to cool. When cake has cooled completely, invert onto a large rectangular serving tray or cake taker, or foil-covered square of cardboard.
  2. Cut the cake into squares and serve with whipped cream or whipped topping.
  3. Makes about 16 to 20 servings.
