I thought a lot about what to bake for Donna's birthday. She told be before that she likes strawberry shortcake and so I thought of making her one. I did a lot of research on a lot of recipes. The original strawberry shortcake uses an actual shortcake, which has a scone-like texture. I found a recipe for it, but it would be hard to make a pretty decorations with it. Most of the current strawberry shortcake is made of sponge cakes. Since I really like my mom's sponge cake recipe, I decided to make the cake using that!
This cake is made of 2 layers of vanilla sponge cake brushed with simple syrup, lots of fresh strawberries, and apple chantilly cream on the inside and outside. I really like the apple chantilly cream. It has a very fresh smell and makes eating the cake more fun!
