2) Pour into two greased and floured 8-inch round baking pans. Bake at 350 F/180 C for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean. Let the cake tin cool before taking out the cake. Then invert the cake and cool it over a wire rack.

3) For the filling: combine the strawberry and sugar on moderate heat. Cook till the strawberries become pulpy. Add vanilla essence and lemon juice. Combine the cornstarch/cornflour with water until smooth and add to the
strawberry filling. Take off from heat. Cool completely.

4) Spread the filling evenly over the top of one of the cakes and place the another cake's bottom over it so that, the filling lies inside the two cakes as a layer.

5) For the icing: in a chilled mixing bowl and with chilled beaters, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add sugar and vanilla and beat until soft peaks are formed.
