Thaw frozen carton of strawberries. Separate the strawberries from the juice and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, mix together cake mix, flour and jello. Add egg whites, almond extract, oil, water and strawberry juice. Blend until moist about 30 seconds.

Pour batter into pan and bake immediately.
Follow baking directions on cake mix.
Cool completely before frosting.
TO MAKE FROSTING:
In a large mixing bowl, mix together powdered sugar, crisco, vanilla, salt and drained strawberries a tablespoon at a time. Beat together until creamy (about 3 minutes). Be careful not too many strawberries or frosting will be too runny.
