This strawberry crunch cake is a fun twist on your favorite strawberry shortcake ice cream bars. Make this strawberry cake as layered or sheet cake using box cake mix and homemade buttercream frosting and strawberry crumble.
Make the buttercream frosting. Beat the butter on low speed until smooth and creamy. On medium speed, beat in the vanilla extract, powdered sugar, salt and 1 tablespoon (15 ml) milk until smooth and well combined.
Apply a layer of frosting (about ¾ cup) to the first layer of cake. Smooth evenly across and slightly passed the top onto the side. Top the frosting with the second layer of strawberry cake. Apply another layer of frosting (about ¾ cup) to the top, smoothing it out and around the sides.
Place the golden oreos and freeze dried strawberries into a ziplock bag. Crush the cookies and freeze dried berries until they are about pea sized. Pour 3 tablespoons of melted butter into the bag and mix until well combined.
