For the strawberries 

Take tops of strawberries and slice or quarter depending on how you like. You want to have 6 cups.  

Place in a large bowl and sprinkle ½ cup sugar over them and let sit for 30 minutes. 

This is called macerating it allows the natural juices to come out and make a syrup. 

For the whipped cream 

Mix the heavy cream and confectionary sugar together in a mixer or food processor until light and fluffy

Final instructions:

Once the pound cake is cooled, slice into 12 slices

Arrange on the plate then spread Nutella on it, topping it with a spoon of strawberries, a dollop of whipped cream, another piece of pound cake, more Nutella, whip, and strawberry. 

Sprinkle with chopped bacon to complete.
