Strawberry Stripe Refrigerator Cake

This cake from Grandma's Sunday Suppers Cookbook is the kind we used to serve to a group for a luncheon or take to a family reunion. It reminds me of the Jello Poke Cakes that were so popular but this is much better tasting. It tastes a good deal like a strawberry shortcake
  10 ounce packages of berries are not to be found anymore. However, you can buy 16 ounce sliced sweetened berries. I used one 16 ounce instead of two 10 ounce and it was more than enough.
  I used Cool Whip in the topping, which I am not a fan of, but it holds up better than homemade whipped cream. It worked fine, but I think the real stuff would be better.
