  2. cut strawberries in small pieces set aside
  3. mix white frosting and cool whip together refrigerate until ready to use
  4. set aside 1 cup or 1-1/2 cups chopped pecans aside it depends on how much you like nuts
  5. place first layer on plate frost generously then sprinkle some strawberries and nut on top then place 2nd layer ontop of 1st layer and so on till you have 4 layers witrh strawberries and nuts btwn each layer
  6. then use rest of frosting on top and sides of cake add remainder of strawberries and nuts place in frig when done must keep refrigerated
  7. this is a cake that requires speed when frosting and layering in warm weather layers tend to slide
  8. for a twist you can make a 2 or 3 layer cake or square cake for the square cake i suggest two layers if cake is smaller than 4 layers use a small tub of cool whip rather than large
  9. not a good cake for those on a diet- enjoy
