CAKE:

Evenly separate cake batter between cake pans and bake for about 45 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. **Cooking the cakes at a lower temperature will keep the center from rising too much so you will get a more level cake.

JAM:
In a medium sauce pan boil down strawberries, sugar and cornstarch until a thick jam has formed. Remove from heat and transfer to a glass bowl to let cool completely (as it cools it will get thicker).

FROSTING:
In bowl of your stand mixer, beat butter until smooth and clump free. Add the rest of the ingredients called for strawberry frosting. **Start off with a 1/2 teaspoon of milk, add as you go if you need to. You want a stiff, thick consistency so your frosting doesn’t run down the sides of your cake.

ASSEMBLY:
Once the cakes have cooled, gently transfer to a wire rack. Taking a sharp knife, slice each cake horizontally. Lay one bottom half on a cake stand. Spoon enough strawberry jam in the center. Spread out evenly. Place top half of cake upside-down on top of bottom half. Spread more jam. Repeat this process until your have layered both cakes.
