Strawberry Danish Dessert aka Ryan's Birthday Cake

My hunk of a husband asks for this cake every year when his birthday rolls around so of course I make it! -- but each year I seem to be making more and more for everyone who comes to his birthday which just happens to coincide with our city's celebration and fireworks . This year I tripled it and baked the cake in two Jelly roll pans! That was a lot of cake!
