Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake

I made this for my brother-in-laws Birthday. His favorite cake is Strawberry. I don’t have a good homemade strawberry cake recipe so I decided to use the WASC recipe and use a Strawberry cake mix. I substituted half of the water for Strawberry liquor and added 10 ounces thawed strawberries chopped and mixed in to the batter. I loved it!

I paired the cake with my most requested chocolate frosting. Whipped Chocolate Ganache. It tasted just like a chocolate covered strawberry. I loved it. Next time I’ll be sure to dump the strawberries on top in chocolate to finish it off.
