  • 1 package 2-layer-size white cake mix

  • Champagne or sparkling wine

  • 1 16 ounce can vanilla frosting

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and lightly flour two 8x1-1/2-inch round cake pans; set aside.

  3. Tint frosting with food coloring to make a light pink. Place one cake layer, bottom side up, on a serving plate. Spread with about 1/2 cup of the tinted frosting. Place remaining cake layer, rounded side up, on top. Frost top and side of cake with remaining frosting. Garnish with strawberries.
