Strawberry Chocolate cake... Question

I want to make a strawberry chocolate cake. I have two chocolate cakes that I have made and I want to put strawberry in between them to form a two layered cake, covered in chocolate fudge icing and thinly sliced strawberries on top forming words.

Can I just buy a can of strawberry filling, or is there a recipe that I can use? Will it make the cake too mushy? Please help! I need to go to the store within the hour.

The cakes I've eaten that have a fruit layer in the middle appear to use jam or preserves. I would think if you put a very thin layer of frosting then the jam that will keep the jam from making the cake soggy. You may want to make like a light cream cheese type spread (cream cheese, milk, powdered sugar, vanilla) to put on it. That would give you another flavor to your cake.

whenever I want a strawberry filling, I use very good preserves between the layers. My mom did the same. no need for frosting to hold it on.

I love strawberry preserves as filling for chocolate layer cake! What time is dessert?

Well I didn't have time to make it, but I decorated one of the cakes and it looks cute lol.. "WELCOME HOME" spelled in strawberry slices, and her name written with icing.
