I’ve been busy with other non-baking/cooking related matters these last couple of weeks and haven’t been baking as much as I’d have liked. This particular order had been placed several weeks in advance and I was glad to have an excuse to fire up my oven. Since I’d made this particular cake only once prior to this, I thought it would be prudent to get some practice in first.
Both cakes here have 3 layers of sponge cake (instead of 4) and were sandwiched with strawberries and cream. The one above is the trial version.
I’d toyed with the idea of using non-dairy whipped cream since it’s supposed to hold up better in our warm climate, but decided against it once I’d read the ingredient list. Dairy cream might contain fat, not give as smooth a finish and be difficult to pipe, but at least it doesn’t contain a whole list of chemicals whose names I can barely pronounce.
Available for Purchase: 9-inch French Strawberry Cake @ a Price of S$60. Variation with Ladyfinger Sponges around the Cake @ S$65.
