I would pipe alot of Raspberry/Strawberry filling in the cake, And make the filling slightly more runny then usual.

Bake your 2 layers of cake making the bottom one a bit taller. Hollow out the bottom layer of the cake, leaving only a 1-inch-thick "wall" on the bottom and sides. Put this layer on it's serving board/plate/platter.
Make your strawberry filling a bit more runny than usual and pour it into the hollowed-out bottom layer of the cake.
Rest the top layer of the cake on the bottom layer, completely covering the strawberry filling. Frost and decorate as usual.
When your cake gets cut, the filling will ooze out.
Good Luck!

If you don't make a tunnel, carve some holes with a spoon.

Chill the cake before you start. Then it will hold the runny filling better. Keep the cake chilled to keep it in shape, but let it come to room temperature for serving.
