Why stop at one layer of frosting when you can have two? Start with a classic buttercream frosting, then mix half the batch with strawberry jam and frost again; it’s a clever hack that delivers major wow factor!

  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ Yellow Cake Mix

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/3 cup seedless strawberry jam

    In large bowl, beat 2 1/4 cups softened butter with electric mixer on medium-high speed until smooth. On low speed, beat in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until smooth and creamy. Beat in 3 tablespoons milk and the vanilla. If frosting is too stiff to spread, add additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time. Spread 2 1/4 cups vanilla frosting on top of cake. Refrigerate 10 minutes.

    Meanwhile, on low speed, beat jam into remaining frosting until well blended. Remove frosted cake from refrigerator. Drop spoonfuls of strawberry frosting on top of vanilla frosting. Spread strawberry frosting evenly on top of vanilla layer. To serve, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    To ensure success with this recipe, refrigerate cake at least 10 minutes between spreading layers of buttercream so colors will stay separate in layers.
  • tip 2
    To soften butter, cut in small pieces, and leave at room temperature. A faster method is to microwave butter in 5-second intervals, turning frequently so butter is softened but not melted.
