If the the cake layers are a basic yellow/white cake recipe you can make those in advance. Bake, cool completely and wrap well. They can even be made a week in advance and frozen but best a day-two and refrigerate. But I would assemble the cake the day you want to use it or otherwise it will get soggy

great idea, it does have about 1/4 cup strawberry puree in cake batter

Have you made this recipe before? I agree with Cynthia. I don't think adding strawberry puree to the batter will do anything for the texture of your layers. I'd reserve the strawberry part for the filling and frosting. The cake layers will freeze well for a week ahead of time, but I'd only assemble the cake the day you're planning to serve it.
