The name “Strawberry shortcake” never sound too much to me. It's just strawberries, simple sponge cake and whipped cream right?
Maybe I have seen quite a lot of strawberry shortcake photos from Japan. It's a big hit there for special occasions. The Japaneses' decoration skills are impeckable. They can make anything look good.
Even it sounds simple and easy to make, I have never done a proper strawberry shortcake, probably because it is too simple and not challenging.
If you do it properly and thoughtfully, it can actually be a very nice cake. Tasty, springy, light and sweet.
Thanks Chef Amjed for his useful hints during the course!
