Yay, I made something special for my husband’s birthday this year. Yes, this was his favourite strawberry cream cake. The beautiful sweet strawberries were bought at a special price. They’re nothing less than perfect. My husband once said that strawberries and fresh cream are perfect partners for making any dessert. I couldn’t agree more. The sweet and slightly tangy taste of the berries is just right to balance the flavour of the whole cake.
Instead of making a 20-cm (8-inch) cake, I decided to make a smaller, 15-cm (6-inch) one this time. It’s a good sized cake for two-people celebration. As fresh cream is used, without any preservatives, it’s better to finish the cake as quickly as possible. For convenience, you may use the store-bought sponge cake to whip up your own.
