Featured Product: Vanilla Almond Kringle 8oz ground coffee

Cake Ingredients

  • 8oz strawberries, fresh
  • 1 boxed cake, yellow
  • 1/2 cup Vanilla Almond Kringle coffee, brewed
  • 1 tsp red coloring, all-natural

Frosting Ingredients

  • 8oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Almond Kringle coffee, brewed

Icing Ingredients

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 TBSP Vanilla Almond Kringle coffee, brewed
  • 1 TBSP heavy cream


  1. Remove the stems from the strawberries and discard them. Place the strawberries in a food processor (reserve a few strawberries for garnish). Puree and measure two 1/2 cup portions.
  2. Follow the directions on the package of the boxed cake. Substitute 1/2 cup of brewed coffee for part of the water. Add in the 1/2 cup strawberry puree. Mix all the remaining ingredients (according to the box package) in a bowl. Scrape the side down with a rubber spatula and mix again.
  3. Grease two 9x5-inch loaf pans. Pour half of the batter into each. Bake in a preheated oven according to the directions on the box. Cool the cakes completely.
  4. Mix the ingredients for the frosting. Put aside
  5. Slice each cake in half, lengthwise, making four pieces. Spread frosting on top of one section of the cake. Spread approx 1/4 cup of strawberry puree on top of the frosting. Add a layer of cake on top. Continue layering until the last section of the cake is placed. Frost the top and sides with the remaining frosting.
  6. To make the icing: Mix ingredients until the glaze runs off the spoon easily. Drizzle over top of the frosted cake.

NOTE: I frosted a semi-naked look on the sides. If you want more frosting, I suggest making a double batch.
