    YUM!!! I threw my own little touch in here! For Chocolate Covered Strawberry lovers:
    Don't add the chocolate to the cake batter, save it for after the cakes have baked
    Slice 3-4 large fresh strawberries
    3-4 Strawberries to use in frosting + Clean garlic press

    Place the sliced strawberries on one of the cakes as soon as it comes out of the oven, sprinkle the chocolate over the cake at the same time so the chocolate can melt

    When making the frosting...
    After adding the vanilla I used a garlic press to "zest" 3 large strawberries into the mix, to keep the texture of the frosting run the pulp through the garlic press 2-3 times and smash it up completely.
    Also, the frosting came out very runny for me, I would recommend refrigerating the frosting for aprox. 20 min. after it is done to help it thicken up and stay ON TOP of your cake!

    Voila! A "Marshmallowy Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake"

    I did not like the way the cake's texture came out...way too dense.
