Cake
Mix cake according to box instructions and bake.
When it has finished baking remove it from the oven and let it cool completely.
Once cooled, cut the cake horizontally across the middle, creating a top and bottom half.
Create a trench on both halves of the cake by scooping out the inside of the cake in a ring. Make sure you do not go through the bottom or the sides.
Add the strawberry filling to the trenches and put the cake halves back together.
Frost the cake with whipped cream.
Garnish with fresh strawberries.
