Poor batter evenly into prepared pans, and bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cook in pans for 10 minutes.
  • Remove cakes from pans and let cool completely on a wire rack. Spread one-third of Coconut Cream Filling between each layer. Frost top and sides of cake with Fluffy Meringue Frosting. Garnish with toasted sweetened flaked coconut and fresh strawberries, if desired.
