You could just add strawberry puree to whatever frosting you use.

You could add the puree to get the whole filling to taste like strawberry and then add chunks of strawberries too, for texture. I like to strain the seeds from the puree as well, but that's my personal preference, as I don't like seeds. Oh, and you may want to add one drop of food coloring, too, because it may not be pink enough without it. HTH!
