package white cake mix (regular size)
cups boiling water
package (3 ounces) cherry gelatin
package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
cups whipped topping
cups fresh strawberries, coarsely chopped
Prepare and bake cake mix batter according to package directions, using a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. In a small bowl, add boiling water to gelatin; stir 2 minutes to completely dissolve. Cool cake on a wire rack 3-5 minutes. Using a wooden skewer, pierce top of cake to within 1 in. of edge; twist skewer gently to make slightly larger holes. Gradually pour gelatin over cake, being careful to fill each hole. Cool 15 minutes. Refrigerate, covered, 30 minutes. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Fold in whipped topping. Carefully spread over cake. Top with strawberries. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
