Strawberry Lemonade Cake

Y'all this is sooooo good! But you have to promise me that you will serve it cold, cold, cold! It's so refreshing and light and embarrassingly easy but you'll have people asking for the recipe and sneaking seconds for breakfast ;) Okay maybe the breakfast thing was just me but it's that good I promise.

Here we go!

1 yellow cake box mix
2 cans of Betty Crocker Whipped Vanilla Icing
1 can Lemon Creme by Comstock (it's in the baking section near the pie fillings)
2 pints of strawberries
3 teaspoons lemon extract

Follow the directions for the cake mix and bake it in two 8 inch cake pans. Once the cakes are completely cool slice them in half so that you will have 4 thin cakes.

Slice up all your strawberries and set aside.
In a bowl mix one container of icing with the can of Lemon Creme and 1 teaspoon of lemon extract. I know this is crazy but trust me. It creates a pudding like substance that it just heavenly.
Place the first cake layer on your cake stand and smother with the lemon icing filling.
Layer the strawberries on top of the lemon filling, next time I will do 2 layers of strawberries for each level. So even though it's not in the picture, add another layer of strawberries, you'll be happy you did.

Then set the next layer of cake on top and repeat the steps until all the cake layers are placed.

For the outer icing, mix 2 teaspoons of lemon extract into 1 can of icing and cover the cake. Chill in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. Refrigerate the leftovers.

All I can say is YUM, EASY, YUM! And I won't tell a soul if you tell people it's from scratch ;)


  1. That looks INCREDIBLY good! Yum!

    I also wanted to say thank you SO much for all your thoughtful, kind comments on my blog. You are such a ray of sunshine. (I know that sounds cheesy, but it's true!)


  2. This looks amazing and seems like something I might actually be able to replicate :) Can't wait to try it! :)

  3. I'm all about "all things easy" because TIME is so scarce these days. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!

  4. I think I'm going to make this for the twins b-day on the 24th, I think they may actually eat or at least taste the cake part, instead of only icing ;)

  5. Good evening!!
    I have an easy question for you. I don't mind lemon, but I'm not a big fan of it. When you mix the Lemon Creme with the vanilla frosting, does it cut some of the lemony flavor?? Also, would I be better off cutting some of the Lemon extract from the outer icing? I don't want to ruin the original recipe, but I want to make it for other lemon lovers but I also want to be able to enjoy a piece of it!! Thanks so much!! :0)
