Marbled cake with cream cheese and strawberries – This is delicious cake for any occasion, whether for friends, surprise your boyfriend or just indulge yourself to taste this cake.
This cake is fantastic to have all year long – but I use it primarily in the summer because it’s kept refrigerated so it’s nice and cool.
My family loved this cake! I will be making this cake again and again throughout the summer. I used a white cake mix instead of the suggested marble cake mix. I’m going to try other jello flavors such as lemon and orange.
Great cake! Very easy. One man at the party I served it at commented that it’s probably the best frosting he has ever tasted. I think this recipe is very adaptable…cocoa in the frosting, different flavored jello and different flavored cake mix. How about lemon cake, orange jello and vanilla frosting tinted yellow or orange? Oh, oh, with orange zest garnish?
Very very good. I had trouble getting my frosting thick enough, I used 2 envelopes of whipped topping mix and even added a little confectioners sugar. Very good with fresh straberries on top!
This was so simple and turned out perfectly. I followed the directions for the cake, but made my frosting with actual whip cream instead of the mix.
