  • Combine cake mix, gelatin mix, oil, eggs, strawberries, and flour in a large mixing bowl. Pour equal amounts into the prepared cake pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  • While cakes are cooling, mix powdered sugar, butter, and vanilla extract together in a bowl by hand. Chill for about 20 minutes.

  • Whip chilled frosting until fluffy. Sandwich cake layers together with some frosting. Spread remaining frosting over the top and sides.
