Coarsely chop remaining strawberries; set aside. In large bowl with electric mixer at high speed beat cream until soft peaks form; gradually beat in sugar until stiff. Spoon half whipped cream into second bowl; fold in chopped strawberries. Set both creams aside. Place one cake layer on large serving platter; tuck strips of wax paper under cake to keep platter clean. Using spatula, spread strawberry cream over cake; top with second cream cake layer. Spread plain cream over top and sides of cake; carefully remove wax paper strips. In top left hand corner of cake, using tip of sharp knife, mark 7 1/2 x 5" rectangle.
