Strawberry Cake with Coconut Buttercream Cream Cheese Frosting

One of the Best Cakes I’ve made, very delicious and pretty like a Red Velvet but made from Strawberry Cake.

Unfortunately I can’t take credit for the Cake mix. I purchased a Strawberry Cake mix and prepared as directed and put into a 8″ Oval Pyrex Casserole instead of a baking pan. I find that this makes for thicker fluffier cakes.

The frosting however is my evil little receipe. I keep modifying it based on what I’m baking and what I have, this time I used:

1/2 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
1/2 stick butter, softened
1/2 (1-pound) box confectioners’ sugar
1 cup shredded coconut

Blend together with hand mixer on medium for 2-4 minutes or until fluffy. Ice Cake with frosting and then cover the cake in shredded coconut.
