Donna Summer and Strawberry Cake Out In the Rain

I’m going to bake a cake and leave it out in the rain in honor of Donna Summer.  Her music was a big part of my childhood and later a staple of any evening spent in a gay club.  R.I.P.  Donna and we loved to love you, baby.

Strawberry Cake

4 eggs
2 tablespoons flour
1/3 cup of water
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 box white cake mix
3 cups powdered sugar
½ stick butter, softened
1 1/3 cup frozen strawberries
1 small package strawberry gelatin

Thaw strawberries to room temperature, drain, reserve juice for frosting.  Mix cake mix, flour, gelatin, cooking oil, water, eggs until well mixed, pour into 9”x 13” pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.  Set pan on wire rack to cool. 

For frosting:  In a mixing bowl cream softened butter, powdered sugar while adding enough strawberry juice to make creamy.  Frost cooled cake as desired.
