You start by baking a boxed devils food cake according to the package directions.  Then you let it cool completely.  Next you make a simple ganache by heating up cream and butter and pouring it over chopped chocolate until it is nice and melted.  Once the ganache is ready, you will combine the cake, ganache and chopped strawberries to create a rich chocolate strawberry truffle cake mixture.  This will freeze in a springform pan for about 45 minutes.  Then when you pull it out you can garnish it with strawberries and melted white chocolate drizzle!
