Hi, do you have a freezer? I just made a cake this week end for my grandson b/d. I used greylakes gelatin can use knox) in the strawberries( i sliced them, put sugar on them and set in fridge overnite). I then took out what i needed(strawberries only, no juice) , put on stove and brought to a boil, then added gelatine mixture to the strawberries. I then let them cool good. I made a stablized whipcream frosting and added the strawberries( recipes all over the internet for this) I torted the layers and layered them with the whipcream and strawberries and put in freezer(in a box covered with heavy foil). took out the next morning and iced with stabilized whipcream It was delicious when came to room temp. All at the party raved about it. Again, if you have a freezer, it will do great in it. hth I also pureed about 2 cups of frest strawberries with the juice, to put over the slices also.
