Baked this one a while ago - found pictures today. May it bring a bit of summer and sunshine to your homes! Classic and always trendy - vanilla sponge, whipped cream, strawberries and chocolate. Enjoy!
Step 1 - Lets bake a basic vanilla sponge (I doubled the recipe for my cake) 6 eggs 1 cup of sugar 1 package of vanilla sugar Beat up with a mixer till steady peaks Fold in 1 cup of sifted flour Bake in a mold covered with parchment at 180C until edges are golden and middle of the cake springs back when pressed Let chill and cut into 2 or 3 layers
Step 2 Beat 2 cups of heavy cream and 1/2 of icing sugar till steady peaks We will use it as filling and as icing!
Step 3 - fill the cake, ice the top and sides, cover sides with cookie crumbles
Step 4 Decorate the borders using a parchment bag with a star tip
Step 5 Cut fresh strawberries (do not remove stems) and spread them like a hand-fan. Decorate the cake with the "fans"
