Strawberries and Chocolate Cream Layer Cake

Strawberries are one of the most beautiful fruits to decorate desserts with, especially layer cakes. It is so fortunate to have them around almost all year long. I made this layer cake for a dinner I attended- combining strawberries and chocolate cream. What is there not to like?
