Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake

This was my birthday cake. I’ve been wanting to make this for months. Unlike the American version with a buttery biscuit, the Japanese version is a layered sponge cake, the whipped cream and strawberries sandwiched in between.
My first attempt at this was a complete FAIL. I used a Japanese recipe, but I didn’t have Japanese pastry flour and just substituted AP… bad idea. The result was something between a sponge cake and a frittata.

Luckily, I found this recipe, and omitting the glaze I found sweet, strawberry success!
