Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Cake

The cake is frosted with lightly sweetened whipped cream, topped with fresh strawberries and slapped with graham cracker crumbs on the sides. It is made up of 4 layers of chiffon cake sandwiches alternating layers of freshly whipped cream and strawberry jam.

I sent it along to the birthday girl without tasting this.

Geez, i hope it tastes fine.

    WOW! Looks so professional. How did you get the whipped cream so stable and defined? Gelatin??
    And how did you do the nuts so nicely by the side? You’re amazing!

      Hi Nel,
      i didnt use gelatin for this, i just whipped the cream senseless. LOL, Of course i took the precautionary measures of chilling my bowls and beaters.

      As for the nuts, its everything u expect it to be, i just carefully slapped them with a flat bladed knife. It takes time and effort of course. But it’s worth it!
