Strawberry Cake for Birthday

Strawberry Cake for Birthday
I made this cake for S's birthday last week. Don't get astonished by thinking why the cake is in triangular shape bcoz I can explain it ;). Due to my impatience I tried to invert the cake before it was totally cool :D. Yeah, you heard me right. What to do, I never baked cakes so much, this is just my second one. But have learnt a lesson not to invert it before its completely cool :). Whatever it might be but we enjoyed having the cake, S liked it very much and we also got a chance to taste the plain one and the cream one too ;). Okay, let me tell you about how I made it. Many of my blogger friends are experts in making cakes and breads and I admire them a lot. So, the step by step images I am putting here may be useful for newbies like me.
Strawberry Cake for Birthday
Serves - 4-5 or more
Cooking and Preparation Time - 45 mins or more

Ingredients :

Ducan Hines Cake Mix - 1 Strawberry Supreme
(Just follow the instructions on it and make the cake)
Eggs - 3
Oil - 1/3 cup
Cake Pan - 8 inch

For Frosting

Vanilla Instant Pudding - 1 mixed with 1 cup milk and kept aside
Frozen Whipped Cream - 1cup (I used 1/2 cup only)
Strawberries for toppings - 2-3 (optional)
Frozen Strawberries blended and made into a thick juice - 4-5 or more ( I used fresh strawberries)

Method :
  1. Preheat the oven for 350 C and start preparing the cake mix following the instruction on the box. As it says in a bowl first mix the cake mix powder along with oil and eggs using a whipper.
  2. Grease the sides of a baking pan (I used 8 inch almost sqaure one) and pour the cake mix paste and place it in the oven baking it for 36-40 mins until its done.
  3. Check with a tooth pick if its done or not. When the tooth pick comes out clean then the cake is done.
  4. Remove the pan outside and let it cool for sometime before attempting to invert it.
  5. After its cool, place a plate or cooling rack on the cake pna and invert it so that the cake falls on it perfectly.
  6. Then, with a spoon cut 1 inch apart on the cake. Pour the strawberry juice we made so that it nicely absrorbs till the bottom.
  7. Then, take the mixture(frosting) we made out of whipped cream and pudding and apply nicely on the cake evenly.
  8. Lastly top it sliced strawberries if like.
  9. Refrigerate it for atleast 4 hrs before serving.
