Although summer is almost over you can enjoy a piece of it anytime with this awesome dessert.

Strawberry Upside Down Cake.

I made this super easy, yet super yummy cake for our family get together on Labor Day.

It was a hit because all I had left were three small pieces that I left with my parents to enjoy as leftovers.


  • 2 cups crushed fresh strawberries
  • 1 (6 ounce) package strawberry flavored Jell-O(R) mix
  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 (18 ounce) package yellow cake mix, batter prepared as directed on package
  • Cool Whip for topping


  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Spread crushed strawberries on the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan. Evenly sprinkle strawberries with the dry gelatin powder, and top with mini marshmallows.
  3. 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.
  4. Top each piece with a dollop of Cool Whip.
