Cakes from Mixes

I have several recipes for cakes using mixes. Here's a good one:

Strawberry Cake

1 package white cake mix
1 package strawberry jello
1/2 cup water
4 eggs
3 tbls flour
1 cup oil
2/4 of 10 oz package frozen strawberries
FROSTING:
1/4 stick butter
remaining berries
1 box (1 lb) powdered sugar

Mix together first 7 ingredients and beat four minutes. Pour into sprayed 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees 30-35 minutes, or until done. Cool. Beat together the butter, remaining berries, and enough powdered sugar to spread. Spread on top of cake and garnish with fresh strawberries.

*NOTE: this cake is delicious, but very sweet...you may prefer to use unsweetened strawberries if you want to lighten it up a bit.
