    To make Strawberry Cream Syrup, in small microwavable bowl, beat both milks with whisk to blend. Microwave on High 30 seconds or until hot. Beat in 1 tablespoon gelatin. Pour half of the cream syrup over each cake. Let cake stand 2 minutes or until cream syrup is absorbed.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

    Using clear glass mugs will show off the pretty pink color of the strawberry cake.
