Hello everyone!

I would like to know how to properly add frozen strawberries to a regular box cake mix? I would like to do this for my husbands bday, which is Thursday! Any suggestions/ideas will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks! :D

My daughter's birthday is this weekend, and she wants a strawberry cake, too! I was planning on buying fresh strawberries for her, since I'm seeing them in the stores.

I have a bag of frozen strawberries, too. I haven't used them in baking before, but I guess they should be thawed first.

If I can I use fresh also. But one of our dgd's asked for a strawberry cake out of season. I bought a bag of frozen, unsweetened whole berries. Took out what I thought I'd need and let them thaw. Then proceeded to mash them (as the recipe stated) for use in the cake and frosting. Turned out fine.

So, do you just make the cake as directed on the box and add your mashed up fruit? Thanks!

Like Karenl, I made the strawberry cakes in the Cake Mix Doctor book. There are two but we preferred the Triple Decker Strawberry (but I made it in two layers). Those cakes are very sweet and very pink (they also have Jell-O)! Do you have the book? The recipes are copyrighted so we can't post them. You might check the link to Recipe Corner (see top of page) but I don't remember it being there. I know that our library has Anne's books so maybe yours will too. If you're not familiar with the books, one look and you will have to buy your own copy. They are so much fun to use.

Can you get the books at wal-mart? And about how much do they cost?

I haven't looked at WalMart, but Amazon.com has all of them.

Cake Mix Doctor

Chocolate from the Cake Mix Doctor

Dinner Doctor

Cupcakes from the Cake Mix Doctor This one has not been released yet.

Or you could check the "Buy the book" link at the top of this page.

2tripletts, I have bought the books at Wal-Mart a time or two, for I want to say, $9.97, and if they have them, a person doesn't have to wait for them to ship from an online source. :wink:

I've mainly used blueberries (frozen or fresh - depending on time of year) in cakes. I'm sure they probably are not as 'juicy' as strawberries.

If frozen, I usually take out as many as I need and put on a paper towel and just let them sit while oven is preheating and I'm mixing the batter. They are still 2/3 to 3/4 frozen (I would think) when I add them to the batter.

It has worked well --- I've mainly used them with lemon cake mix -- in a sort of 'semi-pound' cake; or in upside down cakes in my 9 x 13 -- then I usually use spice or such mixes -- with the other add-ins.

Good news!

You can preorder Cupcakes: From the Cake Mix Doctor online from WalMart.

Sadly, it looks like only QVC offers the four-page booklet on bake sale planning.
:cry:

Oh! no, you can't yet get the Cupcake book yet. It hasn't yet been released. Laura is right. Some of us have preordered it from Amazon, and the delivery estimate that I received was for April,8th., but the other books you should be able to buy at Wal-Mart. Then I'm thinking after the new book is released they will more than likely have it too, because Anne's books are popular cookbooks.

Laura, thanks for clarifying that. :D

The Raspberry Cake in the Dinner Doctor calls for a bag of frozen berries. I would bet you can use any frozen fruit for this recipe.
