Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake

~ Dessert for Chocolate Lovers
(Created by Beth)
1 package Duncan Hines German Chocolate Cake Mix
1 container Duncan Hines Milk Chocolate Frosting
1 can strawberry pie filling
1 package fresh strawberres
1 package milk chocolate wafers

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
Prepare, bake and cool cake as directed on package.
To assemble, place one cake layer on serving plate. Spread thin layer of strawberry pie filling on top. (Do not overfill as it may ooze out of the sides). Top with second cake layer. Frost sides and top with frosting. Refrigerate. You can use piping bag to decorate cake if desired.

For garnish:
Place wax paper over a cookie sheet.
Put milk chocolate wafers in a microwavable container. Heat at 10 second intervals in the micowave, stirring in between, until the chocolate contains no lumps. (Be careful not to overcook). Wash and dry strawberries, then dip into melted chocolate.
Place on wax covered cookie sheet. Refrigerate until chocolate is solid.

When ready to serve, decorate cake with chocolate covered strawberries and serve.
NOTE - Chocolate Covered Strawberries tend to sweat when coming in contact with sugar, so these are best made and served quickly so that the juices do not ruin the cake.
