Method

Step 1
Slice the 2 cups (500 mL) strawberries. Place in small saucepan, with sugar and 2 tbsp (30 mL) lemon juice. Simmer over medium heat 5 min. until sugar is melted and liquids are thickened. Remove from heat. Cool. Transfer to blender; pulse until smooth. Strain mixture through fine mesh sieve. Discard seeds. Set aside strawberry sauce.
Step 2
In bowl, use electric mixer on high speed to beat butter until light and fluffy, about 1 min. With mixer on low speed, beat in icing sugar, whipping cream, 2 tsp (10 mL) lemon juice and salt until smooth. Increase speed to high and beat until light and fluffy, about 1 min. Fold 1/2 cup (125 mL) reserved strawberry sauce into frosting. Chill frosting in refrigerator about 10 min. to firm up.
Step 3
Place cake on serving platter. Spread frosting over top and sides of cake. Hull the 12 whole strawberries; halve lengthwise. Arrange around top of cake.
Step 4
Serve cake with remaining strawberry sauce.
