As soon as I took my first bite, I realized the stupid thing that I'd done. I forgot all about how salty Carbquik is and I should have used unsalted butter. For some reason this cake comes out very flat and dense. The flavor reminds me of those strawberry cake mixes that my Mom would make when we were kids. I used a Royal strawberry gelatin mix, but I think Jell-O brand would have a nicer flavor. Of course you could use any flavor gelatin. The pink color is a bit of a shock, but it might be pretty for Valentine's Day.

UPDATE: I've changed the rating on this from 3 to 2 stars. After chilling, the cake becomes much too heavy and a bit more like Play-Doh than cake. I'll need to work on finding a way to make this cake rise better.
