STRAWBERRY MAGIC CAKE

1 pkg. (10 oz.) miniature marshmallows
1 box (18 oz.) yellow cake mix, prepared per pkg. directions
1 box (3 oz.- 4 serving size) strawberry gelatin powder
1 box (16 oz.) frozen sliced strawberries, slightly thawed, but do not drain
2/3 c. cold water

Spread marshmallows evenly over the bottom of a greased (10x13x2 inch) baking pan. Spread prepared cake batter evenly over marshmallows. Sprinkle dry gelatin powder evenly over the cake batter. Spoon slightly thawed strawberries here and there over gelatin powder and then drizzle evenly with 2/3 c. water, but do not stir it up. Slip cake carefully onto center rack of a 350° oven to bake 55 minutes to 1 hour or til tests done in center and top is golden brown. Let cool in pan on a rack at least 30 minutes before cutting. Refrigerate leftovers to serve within 1 week, garnishing each serving with Cool Whip or whipped cream and additional strawberries. Strawberry Magic Cake freezes well.
