1 recipe yellow or white cake (will follow after ingredients)
2 tbsp. Sugar
1 bowl strawberries
1 bowl cool whip

Yellow Cake:
2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cup butter or margarine
1 3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs

Grease and lightly flour 13x9x2 inch pan. Set pan aside. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl beat butter with electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30seconds. Add sugar and vanilla; beat until well combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating 1 minute after each addition just until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 375 for 30 to 35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
