Is it just strawberries as filling or are they mixed with something (whipped cream or b/c).

I would think that the moisture from the strawberries (if not mixed with anything) would make the cake mushy and the strawberries themselves wouldn't last. Normally strawberries have a very short shelf live.

I found this on yahoo.answers:

"How long strawberries remain fresh depends how they were handled post-harvest. Strawberries are are short shelf life items and will never be as fresh as the day you bought them. Use them as quickly as possible. Do not expect them to last more than three days."

Yeah I would only make it as early as the day before the event. Strawberries dont last in cakes very long. They get wilty and slimy kind of. After its assembled..3 days max before it hits the garbage
