I originally made this for my family for valentine's day, but hubby brought home cupcakes on his way home from work, so I ended up serving this to my elementary class the next day. They all loved it. I, too, had the same problem with the strawberry puree layer. After putting them on, I just spread the remaining evenly across the top and let it refrigerate over night. The next day I put the "icing" on carefully spreading, so not to mix the strawberry layer with the icing layer. I did have the same problem with the icing being a tad runny. If you aren't gentle enough in mixing, it will definitely get runny. I thought the strawberry layer part did leave the cake a bit soggy on the top, but for the kids, they all thought it was great. I can't say it was a bad recipe, but it needs a bit of tweaking to be a five star.
