Place cake mix in large mixing bowl. Add whole eggs, milk, and melted butter. Beat with an electric mixer until blended and smooth, about two minutes, scraping down sides as needed.
Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Spread cake batter evenly into pan. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Just before removing cake from oven place strawberry preserves in a microwave safe bowl or measuring cup. Microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until preserves become runny. Spread preserves evenly over hot cake. Allow cake to cool completely
Place heavy cream and confectioner's sugar in mixing bowl. Beat with electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add softened cheese and vanilla and beat until stiff peaks form, this will happen kinda quickly. Spread onto fully cooled cake.
Garnish with fresh berries, cover, and refrigerate for several hours before serving.
