CAKE:
  • Prepare and bake the cake according to the instructions on the package for a three layer 8-inch round cake.
  • Allow cakes to cool completely.
  • Level tops of cakes if they are domed or rounded.
FILLING:
  • In a small saucepan, combine the chopped strawberries, sugar, and water.
  • Heat the mixture over medium low heat, whisking ingredients together until the juices from the strawberries begin to form. This will take a couple of minutes.
  • Gradually whisk in the corn starch to avoid lumps from forming.
  • Continue to cook until mixture thickens to a jam-like consistency.
  • Remove from the heat and add the sliced strawberries. Stir them into the cooked filling and set aside to cool to room temperature.
FROSTING:
  • Cream the shortening and butter together on low speed just until well blended.
  • Combine the powdered sugar, the meringue powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Set aside.
  • Add the vanilla and milk to the shortening and butter; mix until blended.
  • Start adding the sugar mixture approximately 1 cup at a time and mix just until incorporated after each addition. Do not over mix.
  • Reserve the Karo syrup for adding to thin the consistency if necessary.
ASSEMBLING THE CAKE:
  • Place the first layer of cake on your cake plate bottom side down.
  • Create a dam of frosting on top of the layer around the outer edges of the cake. If you don't have a pastry bag, just put some frosting in a sealable bag, clip the corner, and squeeze out the frosting to form the dam.
  • Add the cooled strawberry filling inside the dam of frosting and spread out evenly.
  • Place the next layer, bottom side down, on top of the filling and continue to dam and fill the layer in the same manner as above.
  • Be sure to level each layer as you add it.
  • Place the top layer, bottom side up, on top of the second layer.
  • Apply the remaining frosting evenly to the sides and top of the cake. Finish with a desired frosting design.
  • Garnish the top with fresh strawberries.

"I made this for dessert on Sunday because I have several grandkids that love strawberries. It was really good and the kids loved it. They thought it was great to get to eat frosting and strawberries. Will definitely make again when I start getting strawberries from my garden."
