2 cups fresh strawberries, crushed
1 (6 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin
3 cups miniature marshmallows
1 (18 ounce) package yellow cake mix, batter prepared as directed on package
Fresh whipped topping, optional
Vanilla ice cream, optional
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F.
Spread crushed strawberries on the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking pan. Evenly sprinkle strawberries with the dry gelatin powder, and top with mini marshmallows.
Prepare the cake mix as directed on the package, and pour on top of the marshmallows. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 to 50 minutes. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the pan to loosen the sides, and turn the cake out onto a serving tray. Store cake in the refrigerator. Serve with some fresh whipped topping or vanilla ice cream if desired.
