Any good Strawberry shortcake recipes that I can turn into a wedding cake??

So my SIL is getting married in August and they don't like cake. They do however like Strawberry short cake. I never had it so I am not sure what to do. I have to make a cake for 100 people. I am thinking of doing a pound cake but that maybe too drying. Also I am not sure about the filling. I was going to put pastry cream and a layer of fresh strawberries or a jam and just frost it with vanilla buttercream and cover it with fondant. Any ideas?? Any good websites for recipes? Or books too! I just finished culinary school myself and I could use the help!!
THANKS!

    you are going to want to probably do this recipe  on a larger scale of course..  filling is the strawberries and cream and then the whipped cream like frosting

  • What you described sounds good, just skip the fondant. Or use angle food cakes and hollow out and put cut up strawberries and whip cream. Frost with whip cream.
