Another Really Easy Naked Cake

Fudge & Strawberry Naked Cake
This is yet another type of naked cake, a bare bundt cake with drizzled icing.  I was really in the mood for chocolate to go with the strawberries this week.  So I gave it a go.

Fudge & Strawberry Naked Cake
This was a Pillsbury box mix.  It was called Fudge Truffle.  The mix had a filling packet that you mixed up separately and added to the batter.  It said on the box not to get the filling near the side of the pan.  My bundt pan is an odd shape and I must have gotten the filling near the edge in one area because the filling was showing on the top of the cake when I turned it over.  Never fear I am covering that up later.

Here is the truffle filling as pictured on the box.  You add that last to the pan before baking and the filling magically sinks through the batter to this spot in the cake.

I put the cake in the freezer to cool and to set.  Then I pulled it out and iced it right away as directed by the package.  The cake being cold made the icing not drizzle as I had pictured.  It sorta froze as it dripped down the sides, so I had to add more.  More icing is never a problem right?

I used this strawberry icing.

I have loads of strawberries blooming in the backyard and I decorated the cake with strawberries and raspberries from the grocery, the strawberry blooms, leaves, and a few rose buds.  It covers the cake's flaws nicely.
