I've made this cake (but never the frosting) at least four times in the last year, sometimes with fresh berries, sometimes with home frozen, once with commercial frozen. The best results came from a mixture of home frozen/commercial frozen. All commercial frozen made the cake a little too sweet, and all fresh berries came out a little dry and not nearly enough strawberry flavor. If you do use fresh, try letting them macerate in a little sugar for a couple hours to release some of the natural juice. Also, you don't have to have exactly the 10 oz of berries, but don't go too far over or the cake falls apart. The same goes with putting too many berries between the layers. I strongly recommend using the Whipped Whip Cream Cream Cheese Frosting - a cake this flavorful deserves a rich and creamy home made frosting.
