Keep the strawberries sliced in half so they release less liquid this way, which will keep the top of the cake looking beautiful longer. If you slice the strawberries thinly, be sure to dry the slices very, very well with a paper towel and serve the cake immediately after decorating.
You can also make this cake a layer cake if you would like. To do this line your baking pan with parchment paper to easily remove the cake from the pan and carefully remove the completely cooled cake from the baking pan.
Slice horizontally through the middle of the cake and add the bottom layer back into the pan.
Fill with buttercream frosting (adding fresh berries to the middle here would be delicious too) and top with the top layer of the cake before frosting and decorating.
Be sure not to add too thick of a layer of frosting in the middle as you won’t have space in the baking pan for the rest of the decorations.

Recipe by Darren Doyle, Editor:
I normally try to stay out of the kitchen when it comes to cooking; however, I've been known to achieve some great things on both the grill and the smoker. One of my favorite dishes is BBQ Ribs and this week I'd like to share my own recipe.
Smoking meat can be quite the challenge for beginners, so there's a learning curve with this style of cooking. There are also all sorts of smokers and I've had them all: egg-type, indirect smokers with fire boxes, and the one I have now, which is an electric smoker. The key to properly smoking meat is monitoring both your meat's temperature and your smoker temp, and thanks to technology, there are easy ways to do that.
Beware: this is not something you decide for supper as you're coming home from work. This takes about 6 hrs of cooking time, and some of the prep work will have to be done the night before. There are three things you need to remember when smoking meat: patience, taking your time, and patience. Smoking meat properly can get a bit pricey. High-quality smokers and temperature monitoring devices aren't found at the local food mart...The art of smoking is a labor of love.
(I often double this or even triple and place in a jar with a lid filled with holes to make a large shaker)
In a salad bowl, whisk together the lemon yogurt, honey, and lemon juice until smooth, and gently fold in the watermelon balls, cantaloupe balls, and strawberries. Toss to coat, and serve.
