Makes 12 servings

Ingredients

1 package (18 ounces) yellow cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare mix
1 container (16 ounces) vanilla frosting
1 quart fresh strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced
1 cup caramel or butterscotch ice cream topping

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease bottoms and sides of four 9-inch round cake pans; line pans with waxed paper. Prepare and bake cake mix according to package directions. Let cakes cool in pans on wire racks 15 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely.
  2. Reserve 1/4 cup frosting. Place 1 cake layer on serving plate; spread or pipe 1/3 of remaining frosting in swirls on cake to resemble whipped butter. Top with sliced strawberries. Repeat with next 2 cake layers, frosting and strawberries. Top stack with remaining cake layer.
  3. Warm caramel topping in microwave just until pourable. Drizzle over cake. Spread or pipe remaining frosting in center; garnish with remaining strawberries.
