Strawberry shortcake

Strawberry shortcake ($6.00+) is another must-try. Instead of having chunks of strawberries or slices of it, the little bits of strawberries eliminate the sourishness which most strawberry shortcakes will have and one will be surprised by the fragrance of this cake. Furthermore, the bottom of the cake is a thin piece of sugar dough base which is crunchy and contrast extremely well with the alternating layers of strawberries and chiffon sponge layers. Did I miss out emphasizing on their light and refreshing Chantilly cream?

Tagged along my Passionfruit meringue order and ordered a 500gm strawberry shortcake.

The cake looks lovely with generous topping of strawberries and blueberries but we notice some difference between the sliced and whole.

The whole cake contains more chantily cream and thus seems to be more moist than the sliced. Also, the chocolate cookie base makes it difficult to slice the cake proper so one might want to cut it with a metallic knife when ordering this cake for special occassion.

The winning factor of the cake lies in the chocolate cookie base but apart from that, I will recommend Decadence's Strawberry and Mango Cream, cheaper with the same goodness.
