1 package white cake mix
1 1/2 quarts fresh strawberries
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cake according to package directions. Grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans; pour batter into pans. Bake cakes until done. Cool completely on wire racks.
Reserve 8-10 large strawberries for garnish. Slice remaining strawberries, place in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with granulated sugar. Mash slightly with potato masher. Chill until ready to assemble cake, at least 30 minutes.
Beat whipping cream in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Add confectioners' sugar and vanilla; continue beating until just mixed.
Place one cake layer on serving plate. Cover with mashed strawberries. Top with about 1 1/2 cups whipped cream. Place second cake layer on top. Spread with remaining whipped cream. Garnish with reserved strawberries.

Thumbs up! I've had this recipe for probably almost a decade. It was spotted by my four-year old two days ago and she begged me to make it, so we did! It is SO easy and it is delicious. Seriously going to be making this again.
