Strawberries are the favorite berry of my dear friend. We will call him B. His poor birthday is in the middle of winter so not often he gets a cake that has his favorite berry. I wanted to give him a homemade present that was a strawberry cake for his birthday. I flipped through my cookbooks to find the perfect recipes. I found that recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks named Pastry Love. It had a recipe for light fluffy Chiffon cake and strawberries with cream.
The warning at the start of the recipe may scare you, but I had good success with this recipe. It was easy to follow and gave you enjoy idea on how to stage the baking. I was surprised how fancy the end product ended up looking like. Just look at my creation! I was just sad that the cut strawberries leaked a touch and started attacking the cream after a hour. The delivery wasn’t for another 2 hours, so I was on leak watch. I had to dab the leaking juice with a paper towel to stop it from getting everywhere. Despite all that, I am still really happy with my creation. Just look at the photo!
