  2. Do you drain the strawberries or use all the juice too? This sounds delicious!

  3. Can you tell me If the jello is in Crystal form and do you make the jello up or just add the crystals to the mixture. In uk we have jello in 2 forms,gelatine blocks and crystals,both makeup with hot water.

    1. You just use the crystals, you don't use water and make the jello. This is what I used: https://amzn.to/2MMj2HZ

    1. I’m not sure - did you check Target & Walmart for the strawberries? They carry them where I live.

    2. There is no reason not to use Fresh Strawberries if you can find beautiful ripe strawberries just do this; 2 cups fruit to 1 cup sugar.Slice washed,dried cleaned of any imperfections into a glass bowl, add sugar and let stand for 3 or 4 hours in a refrigerator until the strawberries have created lots of its own natural juice. Because you are baking this cake at a much lower temperature this should stop your strawberries from turning brown which can happen with fresh strawberries. They need to be super fresh and cut a little thicker so don't be afraid to cut them at 1/2"intervals. Make sure you make a separate batch to serve with the cake and some fresh whipped cream! Yummy!

  5. You could use fresh strawberries 2 cups with 1 cup sugar added; slice the fresh strawberries and mix in the sugar and let stand in a cold refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours until the strawberries create their own juice and soften up.Nothing tastes better than fresh! But make sure they are nice and ripe and you wash and dry them before slicing in a bowl. Save some extra for topping the sliced cake with fresh whipped cream! Yummiest!
