Gluten-Free Strawberry Cake

My daughter has been day dreaming about my strawberry cake. Unfortunately this cake was invented prior to the gluten-intollerance. So I haven't been able to make it for her successfully. As stated before this has got to be the best Strawberry Cake I have ever had. I understand why she dreams about it. Getting the Better Batter package, I am setting out to make my cake, with their product.  So I set out to make some fresh cake. This cake is make of pure fresh strawberries. Filled with frosting made of fresh strawberries.
Just changed to be Gluten-Free so my daughter can enjoy it with us.
