This is another Taste of Home recipe, and it hasn't been tested in my kitchen. It's a great twist on Strawberry Shortcake.

Drain juice from strawberries into a 2 cup measuring cup, refrigerate strawberries. Add water to juice to measure 2 cups; pour into saucepan. Bring to a boil; stir in gelatin until dissolved. Chill for 30 minutes. Gently spoon over each cake layer. Chill for 2-3 hours.
