Strawberry Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I made this cake to celebrate the finalization of our daughter's adoption.  Even though she is too little to eat cake it was fun to make and celebrate with our friends. This recipe is from Life in the Lofthouse.

1 box strawberry cake mix
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil
3 large eggs
1/3 cup sour cream
1 cup diced strawberries

8oz cream cheese (softened)
1/3 cup butter (softened)
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Heat oven to 350. Grease a 9x13 baking dish and set to the side. In a large mixing bowl using a hand mixer combine the cake mix, water, oil, eggs and sour cream. Fold in the strawberries and pour into the baking dish. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes then let fully cool.  Place the softened cream cheese and butter in a mixing bowl and beat together. Add the powdered sugar one cup at a time and mix in until combined. Mix in the milk and vanilla extract. Carefully frost the cake. Refrigerate until read to serve.
