Happy 60th Rita!

I made these for sweet Rita's 60th birthday.

Strawberry cake
1 box white cake mix (Duncan Hines)
1 small box strawberry jello
1/2 boiling water
3/4 cup oil
4 eggs
1/2 cup fresh mashed strawberries
Boil water in microwave. Add jello. Stir until dissolved. Add rest of ingredients. Mix few minutes on medium. Bake 350 for approx. 16 min.

Strawberry frosting
1 stick butter
16 oz. powdered sugar
1/4 cup mashed strawberries
6 ounces of cream cheese
1 tsp. of vanilla.
*this frosting is a little runny so it doesn't pipe anything fancy unless you add more powdered sugar which makes it more sweet.

Too much Chocolate cake from
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix
  • 1 (5.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

Patti's Chocolate Frosting:
1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup softened butter
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 1/2 cup powdered sugar

I love the polka dot table cloth Rachel used.  She bought a few yards of fabric and used it as a runner.  What a cute idea!
Chocolate letters:
traced a 60 backwards onto wax paper so when I pulled it off the opposite side was smooth.
Happy Birthday Rita!
