Mmmm, Mmmm Monday: Fresh Strawberry Cake

Since this time of the year you can get yummy fresh strawberries, I want to share one of my favorite strawberry desserts~ Fresh Strawberry Sheet Cake.
It may not look that yummy or even sound that yummy, but take my word...IT IS AMAZING!
Here is what you need:

Fresh Strawberry Cake
1 Box White Cake Mix
4 Tablespoons Flour
1/4 teaspoon soda
Small package Strawberry Jello (just the powder)
1 cup Oil
1/2 cup Buttermilk
1/2 cup Strawberries, finely chopped
4 Eggs
1/2 cup Sugar

Mix all ingredients together.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes in a sheet cake pan.

Meanwhile, make the icing.
4 cup Confectioners Sugar
1 stick Butter, melted
Pour butter over sugar and mix together.  If icing is think, you may add a little bit of water.
1/2 cup Fresh Strawberries, chopped.
Mix into icing.

After cake is finished baking, let it cool a little.  Poke holes in cake (I make a bunch so the icing seeps in!) and spread icing on top.  May also garnish with strawberries.
Enjoy and try to eat ONLY one piece!

Okay, my mouth is officially watering!! LOOKS SOOOO good!! My husband bought Eggo Strawberry waffles and at first I thought-- Really? why ruin a good waffle and put strawberries in it-- until I realized... hey, whipped cream on this instead of syrup would totally rock.... and as a taste tester, it did... rock.

I have a silly question. When you say "soda" do you mean baking soda?
