Well, if that's the kind of cake he likes, then maybe you could try it. Nothing says you can't make two cakes. Guys are weird, and remember things differently than us girls, so what seems wrong and not special to you might be something important to him *shrug*

That being said, make him whatever his favorite meal is. When I wanted to make a special dinner for my husband, I was planning on some elaborate stuff, but it turns out all he wanted was a simple casserole dish O_o

Heck, most of the time he just wants pizza and stuff like that.

Also, box cake mix is your friend. While making one from scratch can sometimes be more special, they have the tendency to not come out right if you're not experienced with it x-x

He told me his fav dishes and I would make him a dairt cake but all it is is crumbles up oreo cookies and whipped topping..And if I were to make that his mom would eat it all..So I've planned to make him a Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Cake. o_o Since well I wanna combine what we like together. Cept Imma do it a tad be odd...Tell me if this sounds good...

Take 2 Boxes of Chocolate cake..Either One box of Strawberry cake mix, Or a white cake mix and add strawberry Jello ( To make it taste stronger) ..Mix the Choco cake mix and then the strawberry Place about half into a cake pan the the other half with strawberry and use a toothpick to marbleize it.

The Icing..I'm not sure of yet.. ( HELP!!!)

The On top Imma take fresh Strawberry's Dip them into Dark Milk Chocolate..let them harden then tip them with white...Or should I swirl the white around the dark?

I eat cream cheese frosting with any kind of cake, heh. Just get creamed cheese and some powdered/confectioner's sugar and mix 'em together with an electric mixer until it's nice and smooth/workable. I can't give exact measurements 'cause whenever I make some, I just put enough to taste. Get enough cream cheese (or more, that way you have extras) that you think you'll need for the area your working with, then have plenty of sugar on hand to make it taste sweet(er).

If you want a little flavoring, sometimes I put in a bit of *enter desired flavor* extract in. A few drops should be enough, but that also depends on how you want it to taste and how much you're working with. Dyes work well, too, to make it a nice shade of whatever color you're going for. Confuse people and make "chocolate"-colored frosting that tastes like vanilla. 8D

That chocolate and strawberry cake sounds like a good idea (i've done it before with devils food and red velvet). Using white cake with jello won't work, since it will change the consistency of the cake. If you want to go with a really strong flavor though, use a box of strawberry cake mix and add a can (12 oz, or 1 and 1/2 cup) of strawberry soda. This sounds odd, but it does work, and I do this very often (my husband prefers soda cakes to normal cakes -_-), though using a fruit soda may make it too sweet (I always use sprite or diet rite, though sometimes i'll use Dr. Pepper).

As for the Frosting, I second the cream cheese idea. How I make mine is one 8oz pack of cream cheese, one small tub of cool whip, a teaspoon of vanilla and about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of sugar. Mix it all together until it's mixed (it will be a little runny), then turn up your beater and whip it until it's stiff and fluffy. When you refrigerate the frosting, it'll firm up a lot, and tastes like a really light cheesecake.
