  1. Prepare the cake according to package instructions for three 8 inch round cake pans. Bake as directed on the package. Cool on wire rack.
  2. To make the Frosting: In a large bowl, beat the egg white, sugar and strawberries on high speed until very stiff peaks form. This takes about 20 minutes. The frosting really grows so be sure you use a large bowl.
  3. To assemble the cake: Place one layer on a serving plate, put in a couple toothpicks (this helps to hold the layers together) and frost with 1/4 of the frosting. Repeat with second layer. Place third layer on top, and frost top and sides of cake with the remaining frosting.

Was very tasty, but the icing was so runny that when I arrived with the cake at the event, most of the icing had slid off the top of the cake, and I had to re-icing it again.

There are a few things you can do that will help with the runny icing situation. It is basically a meringue icing, so you will want to add about 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar, and 2 egg whites in...

This could not be any more simple! It really does take 20 minutes to make the frosting fluffy so don't skimp on the time. I made the cake in a bundt pan and cut it in half. I put the bottom h...
