How about you try and test it.... It could be that because the strawberries have been "sealed" within the layers of cake, as long as it is kept in a cool room, I wonder if it should be okay???
Of course, if you use whipped cream, you have to refrigerate, but if you use buttercream, you don't..
Try and see.. That's the best way to go, I think... I myself, am always experimenting and testing things to the limit...
