Preheat oven to 350. Generously grease bottom only of a 9 x 13" pan. Sprinkle marshmallows evenly over bottom of pan. Thoroughly combine completely thawed strawberries and syrup with dry gelatin; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Pour batter evenly over marshmallows in prepared pan. Spoon strawberry mixture evenly over batter. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes (or 50) until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm or cool with ice cream or whipped cream. As the cake bakes, the strawberries sink and the marshmallows rise and glaze the top.
